Peel Case Summary

  • At this time there are no active cases in Peel.
  • All cases and concerns have been fully investigated. Conducting your regular daily activities in the community DOES NOT put you at increased risk of getting SARS.

These directives emphasize the need for hand washing and screening of all people with respiratory symptoms requiring health care. This "new normal" will assist health care professionals in preventing the spread of infections.
