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:

  • 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

    • Additionally, if you are visiting a Retirement Home or Long Term Care Home, there is specific provincial guidance on visitor protocols. Please review the guidance by clicking here, and if you have questions or concerns, please contact our local Health Unit at 613-345-5685.

  • Do not share personal items that come into contact with saliva such as toothbrushes, eating utensils, drinks, water bottles, and towels

  • Maintain a 2 metre distance from anyone outside of your household

  • Wear a cloth face covering when going into an enclosed public space, as well as anywhere where maintaining physical distancing will be a challenge, and when riding public transit.

If you suspect you may have novel coronavirus, contact 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.

Your Mental Health

An abundance of coping strategies for individuals, employers, etc. 

BGH’s mental health crisis telephone line continues to be available during this time.

The phone line is available 24/7. You can also call the LLGAMH rapid access line at 613-342-2262.
