The North Bay Health Unit issued a community notice about a potential public exposure to COVID-19. We can’t underestimate the importance of following the protocols. Stay the course North Bay, we are now in the 2nd wave and the trends don’t look favourable.
Hey North Bay, you didn’t just flatten the curve, you smashed it! This speaks to our community resolve and spirit to help one another and shows your great respect for our frontline workers. Our goal in North Bay from day one was to smash the curve to save lives. Our goal was never to flatten the curve as this was just a means to spread the sick over time. So if we let up, we go back to flattening the curve strategy and fill up our Hospital or worse overwhelm it. If we continue to trust our instincts and follow the protocols, we put ourselves in a safer place as the world opens up. We must fundamentally exercise the routines of physical distancing, good hygiene, not gathering as everything unfolds. Your protection and low risk factors in your ability to not let your guard down.
