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.
