This is a joint message from local hospital Chiefs of Staff and Medical Officers of Health

The level of COVID-19 in the Champlain region is on the rise. The COVID-19 wastewater viral signal is increasing in the region and is at record levels in Ottawa. In addition, test percent positivity across the region is high and increasing, according to regional public health units.

In response, every hospital Chief of Staff and every public health unit Medical Officer of Health in the Champlain region are coming together to highly recommend the following four things that you can do right now to protect yourself, your family, and your community, with the goal of reducing severe illness and hospitalization:

  1. Get vaccinated with all the doses you are eligible for.
  2. Limit your close contacts.
  3. Wear a mask in indoor public spaces.
  4. Stay home if you are sick.

If you know or suspect you have COVID-19 and need to be assessed by a clinician, below are some options for accessing care. When possible, please check with your primary care provider first.
