Our cases of COVID-19 continue to rise in Algoma.
Here are some actions to protect yourself, your household, and your workplace to help stop the surge of COVID-19.

  1. Even if you are fully immunized cut back on unnecessary activities where you have unmasked, face-to-face close contact with people you don’t live with.
  2. Anyone who is sick, even with mild symptoms, must stay home and isolate away from others – regardless of whether you have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
  3. Get fully vaccinated.

A message from Algoma Public Health…
Moving forward, as clusters and isolated cases appear, APH appreciates your support and continuing to push this message: the thing to do is not publicly shame any group or person, or paint an entire community with stigma, but to wrap supports around folks who are ill and need assistance, and combat misperceptions and stigma. Fear and stigma are real. But we can help combat that!  We know that the vast majority of Algoma residents are taking precautions.  Let’s continue to encourage this, while not stigmatizing ill individuals, nor entire communities.

The Algoma Public Health Website contains a lot of information about Covid-19 and the approved vaccines – Click here for more information
