Temagami Update #38 on COVID-19

 As COVID-19 continues to rise provincially Dr. Glenn Corneil strongly stated, “We must continue to closely follow all public health measures and provincial orders”. This includes practicing physical distancing with those outside your household or social circle, wearing a face covering when physical distancing is a challenge or where it is mandatory to do so, staying home when ill, washing your hands frequently and thoroughly, and downloading the COVID Alert App.

Group gatherings continue to be a source of local concern. You must limit your number of close contacts and follow the province’s updated guidelines on gatherings to a maximum of 25 people outdoors and 10 people indoors. People who host a gathering in excess of these maximums may be subject to fines up to $10,000. During any gatherings, if you can’t maintain physical distancing from people who aren’t within your immediate social circle of 10 people, then please wear a mask.

The Ontario government is committed to taking every step to protect long-term care residents, staff, and caregivers. These investments and actions are part of Ontario’s COVID-19 fall preparedness plan, Keeping Ontarians Safe: Preparing for Future Waves of COVID-19. The government is investing more than half a billion dollars in additional supports for long-term care to ensure the sector is prepared for future surges and waves of COVID-19 this fall.

To ensure the continued health and safety of Ontarians, reduce the risk of transmission and limit future outbreaks of COVID-19, the Ontario government has tightened public health measures province wide that have come into effect at 12:01 a.m. on September 26. For more details on these new restrictions, please visit www.ontario.ca/COVID19.

Please visit www.health.gov.on.ca for more information on the workplace screening tool and guidance document. The screening of employees entering the workplace is being recommended by the Ontario Ministry of Health. As per the Ontario Regulation 364/20 2.(3) The person responsible for a business or organization that is open shall operate the business or organization in compliance with the advice, recommendations and instructions issued by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health on screening individuals.

On September 29, 2020, The Timiskaming Health Unit was notified that two positive cases of COVID-19 from individuals currently outside of our district have been added to our local case count. Although both of these individuals have home addresses in the Timiskaming district, they are currently out of the area and have not been in our district for some time. There was no risk of local exposure from these two cases. The two cases do not have an epidemiological link between them and both are contacts of known positive cases. Positive cases are attributed to a health unit by the patient’s address. With these two cases the total for the district of Timiskaming now sits at 18.

The Temagami Medical Centre is now a COVID-19 Assessment Centre. Anyone with symptoms, should call to be screened at which time it will be determined if a swab should be done. If you are given an appointment to come to the clinic to be swabbed, please ensure you arrive on time. Anyone arriving more than 5 minutes late will be rescheduled.

For more information on the regulations related to wearing masks please visit: https://www.timiskaminghu.com

The Municipal Office and the Temagami Public Library are still accessible via scheduled appointments, telephone and by doorbell located at the exterior doors.

   THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND EFFORTS TOWARDS 
                                  FLATTENING THE CURVE OF COVID-19.
