Tuesday, April 7 - Southwestern Public Health Update

A Message from Southwestern Public Health

During these difficult times it is common to have issues finding food in the grocery store or receiving food from an emergency meal service provider. If you need to have groceries delivered or require emergency access to food and meals, Southwestern Public Health has compiled resources for you.
  

Several weeks ago, we distributed messaging regarding the use of non-medical masks. We recommended against the use of non-medical masks for people who were well, and recommended only for instead the use of medical masks for health care workers and people who were unwell. That message was based on the best available information at that time. Today, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, changed her recommendations and suggested that non-medical masks could be worn by people who are well in conjunction with social distancing. It is important to note that, according to Dr. Tam, non-medical masks are more for the benefit of the people around the wearer, not for the wearer themselves.  

Many individuals tested for COVID-19 can now get their results online. Please note, not every lab in Ontario is connected to this results portal at this time.
