KFL&A Public Health continues to ask individuals to continue to: 

  • Monitor for symptoms daily and stay home when sick—even mildly symptomatic people should self-isolate immediately and seek testing. 
  • Avoid social gatherings. 
  • Get fully vaccinated and seek a third dose when eligible.
  • Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with and wear a mask in indoor spaces.
  • Consider curbside pick-up, delivery, or alternate hours for shopping, especially if you are at a higher risk for illness.
  • Clean your hands frequently.
