The Grey Bruce Health Unit has received notice that we will be entering the Green stage of the re-opening framework as identified by the province, effective Monday, March 1, 2021.
The regional-based COVID-19 Response Framework uses a color-coded system for each health unit (Green – prevent, Yellow – protect, Orange – restrict, Red – control, Grey – lock-down) to determine safe reopening protocols. The change to green reflects a continuing trend towards lower case counts in Grey Bruce and over-all provincial trends identified in the province’s latest modelling data.
The Green – Prevent status includes standard measures that focus on education and awareness of public health and workplace safety measures; restrictions reflect a broader allowance of activities; and, highest risk settings remain closed.
