Peel Public Health Reminders for Easter Weekend
As COVID-19 continues to circulate in our community, it is important to remember that public health measures remain our best defense against the virus. No one thing on its own is 100% effective at preventing the spread of COVID-19 but layering public health measures provides the best protection. Layers of protection include:
• Getting vaccinated.
• Staying home when sick.
• Washing your hands frequently.
• Practicing proper respiratory etiquette by covering coughs and sneezes.
• Using a high-quality mask when necessary.

For more information on how and where to book your COVID-19 vaccine in Peel, visit peelregion.ca/coronavirus/vaccine/.

Take care of each other by following the provincial guidelines in its Plan to Safely Reopen Ontario.
