Ontario region declares COVID-19 “critical threshold” as cases surge

Ontario’s Grey Bruce Public Health Unit has issued an urgent warning for the region and has declared a COVID-19 critical threshold due to soaring cases and trouble conducting contact tracing.

Health unit staff reported they need to shut down their COVID-19 information line in order to free up resources to follow-up with contacts who may have been exposed.

A large vaccine clinic scheduled for Saturday has also been close. Also, residents are urged to stay at home for the next two or three days, except for essential reasons, as contact tracing continues.

Kamil Karamali explains the plea from Owen Sound Mayor Ian Boddy and why a surge in COVID-19 cases is catching health officials off guard.
