Currently, many community programs like shelters and food banks are continuing to operate as they are deemed Essential.

These spaces should implement infection control protocols including appropriate cleaning and disinfection strategies.

Please note that the Grey Bruce Health Unit is asking individuals to limit congregating in groups while maintaining safe physical distancing (the lower the number of people, the less the risk of transmission) in all settings.
