Important Messages from the Health Unit

COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) is a respiratory virus with symptoms ranging from mild cold-like symptoms to severe illness with fever, cough, difficulty breathing and pneumonia. There are confirmed cases in Canada, including Ontario. The City is working closely with the lead agency Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit and other community partners to monitor the global situation and respond accordingly.

The Health Unit has put up a new communication strengthening their social distancing directives and putting national/provincial guidelines in a local context. Please follow these important guidelines.

Your Health

The City of Brockville has established plans and processes to monitor and address the COVID-19/Coronavirus.  The City is taking proactive measures to limit the spread of the virus and to protect our residents, businesses, visitors and staff.

The City is requesting the public’s assistance in reducing the spread of the virus, as follows:

  • Please cancel public gatherings until further notice
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth unless you have just washed your hands with soap
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hands
  • If possible, stay home from work/school if sick (as always, if any concerns, seek medical attention)
  • Avoid visiting people in hospitals or long-term care centres
  • Do not share personal items that come into contact with saliva such as toothbrushes, eating utensils, drinks, water bottles, and towels

If you suspect you may have novel coronavirus, call the Health Unit (613) 345-5685 or Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000.

Please DO NOT present directly to the emergency department, as most people can self-care at home and do not need medical attention. This will help protect resources and other more vulnerable patients who do need emergency care. Know the Difference : Self-monitoring, self-isolation, and isolation for COVID-19.
