Zero Active Cases of COVID-19 for Halton Hills

August 4 statistics have just been released by Halton Region and they show that while there are still 17 active cases of COVID 19 in the Region (5 in Burlington, 5 in Oakville, and 7 in Milton), there are ZERO active cases in Halton Hills. Yesterday marked the second straight day where Ontario has reported less than 100 new cases and nearly 90% of total cases are considered resolved. While this is great news for the town, in her statement released on August 3, Dr. Tam, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, stated “Places that once had the virus under control are not immune to resurgence, as we’ve seen in several countries. But, Canada doesn’t have to be one of those places. There are things we can do to stop COVID-19 from finding opportunities to spread and surge. If we all stick to activities within a small, consistent social bubble; practise physical distancing; avoid higher-risk settings; and layer on precautions (handwashing, cough etiquette, wearing a mask/face covering) we can keep the pressure on and squeeze the virus out of our summer plans. Individual actions matter. What each of us do now will shape our collective future. Back to school, work and recreation plans require more than stocking up on new stationary, clothes and sports equipment. If we want the Fall to bring back more of the things that we all enjoy, while protecting our families and communities at the same time, we all need to stick to the precautions that we know work now.” Keep it UP at keeping those numbers down!
