Grey Bruce Public Health News Release- July 15, 2021 Delta Variant Concern - Roadmap for Modified Step 3 in Grey Bruce

Health Unit
Based on our trust that the public will comply, Grey Bruce is moving to a modified Step 3, with strong recommendations instead of regulatory orders to contain the spread of COVID-19.
While the Step 3 provincial reopening would relax restriction on the numbers that can gather, the Grey Bruce Health Unit strongly recommends current limits on private gatherings remain locally. It is recommended that an outdoor gathering can have a maximum of 25 people and 5 for indoors.
Additional recommendations for modified Step 3 in Grey Bruce include:
  • The public is strongly encouraged to only dine outdoors.
  • Workplaces and patrons follow public health measures, especially gyms, cinemas, and fast food locations.
  • Church services and attendees, specifically wedding receptions, follow public health measures.
  • Personal service settings and salons continue to require masks be worn, as in Step 2.
It is important we all continue to follow the COVID-19 prevention measures:
  • Practice Physical Distancing
  • Wear a face covering in indoor public places and when physical distancing may be difficult
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Stay at home if you are sick or unwell
  • Clean and disinfect high-touch objects and surfaces frequently

We need everyone to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible.
