Grey Bruce Health Unit

 

As the Medical Officer of Health for the Grey Bruce Health Unit, and on behalf of the Board of Health and the Health Unit staff it is my pleasure to wish everyone a safe and healthy Canada Day.

The current world-wide situation gives each one of us pause to reflect on what it means to be a Canadian…and in doing so, commit to a better future for our children.

Road to Recovery

As the province launches into the recovery phase of the COVID-19 outbreak, a number of local plans are being put into place. This will include a gradual, staged approach to reopening businesses, services and public spaces. The Recovery Phase section of our website will be updated as details emerge from the province and as local information becomes available.
