Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

DAILY COVID-19 UPDATE FOR WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2020

The Porcupine Health Unit (PHU) is reporting one confirmed COVID-19 case among residents in the Timmins region. More information about confirmed cases in the PHU region.

It’s important to find some time for fun but we have to do it safely. This year is unlike any other and we can’t take any chances. As much as we would like to spend time with your colleagues and friends, we must do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. The safest way is to celebrate Christmas this year is limit contact with those outside own households.

Protect your loved ones and community members by considering a virtual Christmas office party rather than an in person gathering. Challenge colleagues to a virtual ugly Christmas sweater contest, share lunch via online platforms or a virtual gift exchange.

Remember to wear a face covering if you’re unable to maintain a 2-metre distance, frequently wash your hands and stay home if you have symptoms. Working together, we can successfully have a Healthy Holiday.

Our COVID-19 Information line is open today from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call the toll-free number, 1-800-461-1818 or the PHU office in your community, see local contact numbers.
