A MESSAGE FROM CHIEF AND COUNCIL – NOVEMBER 24, 2020

November 24th, 2020

Aaniin Curve Lake,

We wanted to thank all of our community members for cooperating with all of the precautionary

measures that have been put in place to protect our community from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our pandemic response relies on the collective spirit and resiliency that you have shown

through this difficult year. Your efforts make us proud to call Curve Lake home.

Although we have been successful so far in our measures, it is more important than ever that

we re-evaluate our response. Alongside our State Of Emergency Declaration from the first

wave, a proactive approach is necessary as we begin to see parts of Ontario enter into

lockdowns during the second wave.

PETERBOROUGH REGION MOVING INTO ‘PROTECT’ LEVEL TO CONTROL SPREAD OF COVID-19

November 22nd, 2020

As of Monday November 23, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. Peterborough Public Health will be strengthening COVID-19 measures and moving into the Yellow – PROTECT level of the provincial COVID-19 Response Framework.

“Moving into the yellow zone is based on a number of indicators that show the rate of community spread is increasing, even if we exclude the cases linked to the Fairhaven outbreak,” said Dr. Rosana Salvaterra, Medical Officer of Health. “The most concerning one for me has been the increased proportion of cases with no link to either travel or contact with a case. I’m hoping the new measures now required for our region will enable us to be more effective in preventing new cases and our staff will be ensuring local business operators have what they need to develop the required Safety Plans.”
