This week the Region of Peel wrote a letter to parents and guardians about the coronavirus. “The outbreak in China is still evolving, however it is important to note that to date there are no reported cases of COVID-19 in the Region of Peel.
“Peel Public Health continues to support Peel residents through providing up to date and credible information. As the situation around the virus is changing, students should stay up to date through trusted online sources including The Ministry of Health website and the Peel Public Health novel Coronavirus page.”
The region says there have been some updated recommendations for individuals travelling from China.
If you or your family have recently returned from China (especially if you’ve travelled to Hubei province, including Wuhan) in the last 14 days, you should stay at home and avoid close contact with others, including those in your home, for two weeks.
If you notice flu-like symptoms, contact Peel Public Health immediately and refer to Peel Public Health’s guide on how and where to get medical help.
You do not need to contact Peel Public Health if you are well.
If you have a health concern or other question about the virus, please call Peel Public Health at 905-799-7700 or for residents of Caledon, 905-584-2216. -CINEWS
