Medical Officer of Health Canada Day Message


As we celebrate Canada Day it is important to reflect on the fact that the strength of our country lies in its diversity. 

From sea to sea to sea, Canadians of all backgrounds and varied origins have come together to create a society that is welcoming to all. 

While we acknowledge the missteps along the way, we learn from each, and use that knowledge to build a more inclusive and compassionate community. 


I encourage everyone to respect others with kindness and caring.

A Thanksgiving Message from Dr. Ian Arra, Medical Officer of Health

posted on

Dear all families in Grey Bruce,

 

With Thanksgiving approaching, and as the Medical Officer of Health for Grey Bruce I am very thankful to everyone in Grey Bruce for the amazing support they have shown in truly investing in efforts to best position our communities for success in weathering the COVID-19 emergency, and keeping our families safe.

 

We have done exceptionally well, but we cannot lower our guard yet. Not until we have a vaccine, which I am cautiously optimistic will be approved by the end of this year and available next year. Until then we must continue to remain diligent in adhering to the three Ws:

 

•             Watch your distance and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres or more, when possible

•             Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or alcohol-based hand sanitizer

•             Wear face coverings correctly in indoor public spaces

 

I wish you and your families a happy and safe Thanksgiving. And I remain,

 

Yours very truly,

 

Dr. Ian Arra,  MD MSc FRCPC ACPM ABPM
