COVID-19: Lady Minto Hospital Medical Staff Association - Stay Close to Home This Weekend

Again, we thank you for your excellent efforts to flatten the COVID19 curve in weeks past. It is because of your dedication to our community’s health that we can begin to relax a few of the restrictions.

At this time, we still need to adhere to some important guidelines to minimize the risk of a secondary outbreak. If we continue on this good path, we will be able to relax things further in June and July. Please: This long weekend, make smart choices. Stay close to home so we can keep our communities safe.

  • Stay informed, be prepared and follow public health advice
  • Practice good hygiene
    • Frequent hand washing
    • Avoid touching face
    • Cough into your sleeve
    • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces
  • Stay at home and away from others if you’re feeling ill
    • Don’t go to school or work sick
  • Maintain physical distancing outside your household
    • No handshaking or hugging
      • Small numbers of contacts
      • Keep a safe distance
  • Clean your home and workspace more often
  • Consider using non-medical masks when physical distancing isn’t possible
