COVID-19 Surveillance Reports during the Victoria Day Long Weekend

Point Edward, ON – Lambton Public Health is reminding the public that while COVID-19 contact tracing continues, the daily surveillance report will not be updated on Monday, May 24 (Victoria Day).

This follows a similar approach with reports from other Provincial health authorities and health units.

Lambton Public Health will continue all case and contact management procedures during the weekend and on the holiday Monday. These procedures support the investigation for a confirmed case, and help to reduce further transmission in the community and settings.

“It’s the long weekend and the great outdoors is calling,” said Dr. Sudit Ranade, Medical Officer of Health for Lambton County. “While we face a Provincial Stay at Home Order, it is still important to get outside and support your mental health and well-being. Help keep yourself and others safe by continuing your basic actions: following current Provincial gathering limits, maintaining physical distancing, and masking when you can’t. Every action you take this weekend helps get us closer to a better summer.”

We all have a role to play to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. We are stronger when we all work together. If Lambton Public Health contacts you, please be honest and understand that isolating close contacts is critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19.
