Posted On: Thursday, November 19, 2020

Over the past weeks, there has been an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Grey-Bruce – as of November 18th there were 42 active cases, and close to 200 active high risk contacts in Grey and Bruce Counties.

School screening and return to school

School screening and return to school

Posted On: Friday, September 18, 2020

The Grey Bruce Health Unit has heard from a variety of stakeholders expressing substantial concerns about stringent application of the current screening questionnaire that may send children for testing when it is not required. This may also needlessly exclude children from school, and result in isolation of household members including parents’ inability to go to work. For example, one sneeze should not warrant school exclusion, isolation, nor testing.
