Thanksgiving Letter to Grey Bruce families by Medical Officer of Health

Dear all families in Grey Bruce,

With Thanksgiving approaching, and as the Medical Officer of Health for Grey Bruce I am very thankful to everyone in Grey Bruce for the amazing support they have shown in truly investing in efforts to best position our communities for success in weathering the COVID-19 emergency, and keeping our families safe.

We have done exceptionally well, but we cannot lower our guard yet. Not until we have a vaccine, which I am cautiously optimistic we will be available by the end of this year. Until then we must continue to remain diligent in adhering to the three Ws:

•             Watch your distance and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres or more, when                 possible
•             Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
•             Wear face coverings correctly in indoor public spaces

I wish you and your families a happy and safe Thanksgiving and I remain,

Yours very truly,

Dr. Ian Arra,  MD MSc FRCPC ACPM ABPM
