FOR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION
COMMUNICATION WITH PUBLIC HEALTH
We are streamlining our communication with area health care providers and henceforth will use email to communicate Advisory Alerts with you.
Please send your professional/office email address(es) to us at Health_Protection@phsd.ca immediately. These addresses will be used for the purposes of communicating urgent public health information.
Note that as we transition, we also will send a fax alerting you to the email and to the phsd.ca link where you will find the Advisory Alert or relevant information.
PRIMARY CARE GUIDANCE UPDATE
The Ontario Ministry of Health has released an updated primary care guidance document for COVID-19 (PDF). This is attached for your immediate access as it is not yet posted on the Ministry site. Please ensure you are familiar with these guidelines.
Should you have questions or comments, or for immediate reporting of COVID-19, please contact the Control of Infectious Diseases Program at 705.522.9200, ext. 301 (toll-free 1.866.522.9200) or after hours at 705.688.4366.
