WDG Public Health Region Moves to Yellow, Protect, Level
As of Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 12:01 a.m., the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health region will be moved to the Yellow, Protect, level, within the new Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Framework.
For the full news release, click here.
The framework categorizes public health unit regions into five levels:
- Red–Control, and
Each level outlines the types of public health and workplace safety measures for businesses and organizations. These include targeted measures for specific sectors, institutions and other settings.
The Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Framework takes a comprehensive, whole of government approach by introducing preventative measures earlier to help avoid broader closures and allow for additional public health and workplace safety measures to be introduced or removed gradually. It ensures that public health measures are targeted, incremental and responsive to help limit the spread of COVID-19, while keeping schools and businesses open, maintaining health system capacity and protecting vulnerable people, including those in long-term care.
