COVID-19: Public Exposure Notifications
Last updated: December 16, 2021
This page provides regular updates on possible public exposures to COVID-19 in the Peterborough region.
COVID-19 is spread from person to person, through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes in close proximity to another person. The virus can also spread when someone touches an object or surface with the virus on it and then touches their mouth, nose or eyes, without washing or sanitizing their hands.
Symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild to severe. It is important that anyone who has symptoms stay home and take the online self-assessment tool.
Peterborough Public Health (PPH) will reach out directly to anyone identified as a high-risk close contact of a confirmed case to provide further instructions.
PPH lists locations open to the public where a positive case of COVID-19 worked/visited/attended during their infectious period when:
- It is determined there was a risk of public exposure, and
- PPH is not able to contact everyone who may have been exposed
Peterborough Public Health asks anyone who visited the location listed below on the identified date to monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days from the date of exposure. If symptoms develop, get tested immediately.
If you develop symptoms of COVID-19:
- Isolate yourself immediately
- Take the online Self-Assessment
- Go to an assessment centre for testing
- Contact your healthcare provider
