Dear Residents, Families, Friends, Staff:
Halton Region is in the Red (Control) Level due to a rising number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. Heritage Place remains in “High Alert status”. As socializing outside becomes more difficult, we should be avoiding the 3 C’s wherever possible: Closed spaces, Crowded places, and Close contact situations. The number of Retirement and Long Term Care homes in outbreak continues to rise and Halton is one step away from lockdown.
Control Level (RED) / High Alert status means it is strongly recommended to:
· Stay home, except for essential purposes such as buying essentials such as groceries and attending medical appointments.
· Maintain a physical distance of two metres (six feet) from each other.
· Avoid all social gatherings such as dinner parties with friends or family.
As cases continue to rise, it is more important than ever to follow public health direction and to take personal responsibility to protect yourself and others. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is a community effort and our individual actions make a difference.
In a recent address to Canadians, Prime Minister Trudeau said,
"We can do this—we've done it before. We know what to do. We understand this virus much better than before. We need to reduce our contacts. We need to do it right now." It is imperative that we all follow these guidelines. Please - wear a mask, wash your hands.”
Heritage Place is committed to keeping everyone safe and to keep COVID-19 out of our precious community, your utmost cooperation is required. The past months have taken their toll on everyone. It is in our best interest to not let our guard down now and we must continue to keep up all the hard work we have done since the pandemic began. Let us not diminish what we have accomplished over the last nine months. Please know that the actions of each individual matter a great deal. By remaining vigilant, and taking these measures seriously, we can help keep our community safe.
Thank you for doing your part.
