Notice :

Dr. Lianne Catton, Medical Officer of Health for the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU), with the support of leaders across the PHU region, and the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Ontario, Dr. David Williams, announced, “At this time, the numbers and evidence have led to the important and necessary decision to continue some restrictions from the Provincial shutdown as it moves to Step 1 of Ontario’s 'Road Map to Reopen'. I am issuing instructions that allow the Porcupine Health Unit to extend important public health measures currently in place under the Provincewide Emergency Brake.”

The instructions are effective as of Friday, June 11, at 12:01 a.m., and will likely remain in effect until at least Friday, June 25, 2021. The need for the continued measures will be assessed weekly.
