Shutdown Extended

February 8, 2021 - The Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) region will remain in a temporary shutdown, until February 16, 2021.

The extension of the shutdown in our area means TBDHU will continue to experience time-limited public health and workplace safety measures to control the spread of COVID-19. The stay-at-home order remains in place.

After February 16, 2021, it is expected that the TBDHU region will transition from the shutdown measures to a revised and strengthened COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open (colour-coded system). Final decisions on the level in the colour-coded framework will be subject to review of the trends in public health indicators at that time.

Additional information on the announcement can be found in the Province of Ontario press release.

TBDHU encourages all residents to follow all public health measures to protect the health of individuals and our health system. As usual, if you get any COVID-19 symptoms, even mild ones, isolate immediately and arrange to get tested at your local assessment centre.
