The Review

Green Does Not Mean Everything Goes

Posted On: Thursday, March 18, 2021

Grey Bruce is in the Green- Prevent Zone  in the Ontario COVID-19 response framework. There remain limits on activity to prevent spread of the COVID-19 virus. Individuals should not be gathering in uncontrolled situations.

Green Does Not Mean Everything Goes

Residents are reminded staying home is still the best way to protect yourself and others.

You are strongly advised to:
 

·stay home as much as possible

·avoid social gatherings

·limit close contacts to your household

·work from home if possible, and allow your employees to work from home if they can

·maintain two metre physical distancing

·avoid travel except for essential reasons; essential includes:

·going for food or medications

·going to work – if it can’t be done at home

·going for healthcare services

·supporting vulnerable community members

·going to childcare or school

·getting exercise or walking pets

Observe limits set forth in the Provincial Framework:

·Events and social gatherings in private homes, backyards or parks (for example, barbeques):

o   Indoors: 10 people

o   Outside: 25 people

·Organized public events and gatherings in staffed businesses and facilities (for example, event spaces):

o   Indoors: 50 people

o   Outside: 100 people

·Religious, wedding and funeral services:

o   Indoors: 30% capacity

o   Outside: 100 people

 

Wear a face covering or mask:

·indoors, any time you are within two metres of someone outside your household

·if physical distancing cannot be maintained

·if wearing one is required

·whenever face-to-face with someone outside of your household, especially if you are within two metres.

 

Grey-Bruce statistics, to date, indicate that schools are safe environments. The positive outcomes of in-person learning and socialization eclipse the low risk of COVID-19 acquisition in the controlled environment of schools. Implementing robust public health measures such as physical distancing, cleaning practices, direct observation, enhanced screening measures, and wearing a mask correctly all contribute to that success. Remember, not all of the protective measures in schools are in place outside the school environment.
