COVID-19 Provincial Re-Opening – Grey-Bruce Moving to Yellow

 

The COVID-19 lockdown for Grey Bruce is set to end on Tuesday, February 16. Until then, the shutdown and stay-at-home orders, currently in effect, remain in place.

When the lockdown is lifted on February 16, 2021, the province will return to its regional-based COVID-19 Response Framework  using a color-coded system for each health unit (Green - prevent, Yellow - protect, Orange - restrict, Red - control, Grey - lockdown) to determine safe reopening protocols.

The Grey Bruce Health Unit has received notice that we will be entering the Yellow stage of the re-opening framework as identified by the province.
