The Province has announced that the Leeds Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit is now in the green prevent zone.

The green prevent zone means that businesses may reopen, however, there are still public health measures required. These measures include daily screening of employees, social distancing, clean and disinfecting regularly, signage, capacity numbers and the continued wearing of a mask. The health unit has provided Tips for Keeping Your Workplace Safe (https://healthunit.org/media/2021-archive/tips-for-keeping-your-workpla…- 19-pandemic/)
