New Public Health Measures Take Effect December 17th

During an event like Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), the role of public health is to limit the spread of an illness through surveillance, containment and education.

Starting December 17, all private dwelling indoor gatherings are limited to immediate households only (single individuals are permitted to meet with one household of less than five [always the same household] and single persons with minor children are permitted to follow the guideline for single individuals). Co-parenting arrangements are permitted to continue.

Starting December 17, all private and public outdoor gatherings are prohibited, except persons in groups of 10 or less may briefly meet to exchange greetings and must ensure physical distancing between households is maintained.

Starting Saturday, December 19:

Casinos and bingo halls must close; and

Personal care services must reduce customer occupancy by 50 per cent.

Beginning December 25, retail services (essential and non-essential) must reduce their capacity to 50 per cent as prescribed in the public health order. Large big box retailers, as defined in the public health order, must reduce to 25 per cent of capacity.
