As of January 12, 2021 the Province of Ontario has announced tighter restrictions in an effort to control the spread of COVID-19. As part of the new restrictions, the Province has issued a “stay at home order”. People should only go out only for essential trips, such as to pick up groceries or go to medical appointments. By implementing these measures and asking everyone to stay home, we can stay safe and save lives. Click here to read more about the measures that will take effect. We are in the process of reviewing the changes and will update our website shortly.
Peterborough Public Health is actively monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and collaborating with local hospitals, primary care, emergency services, the Ministry of Health, provincial and national colleagues.
