Public Notices

Current Public Notices

When is a Public Notice issued?

When York Region Public Health conducts case and contact tracing activities, we may learn of a situation where a case or their contact(s) were working while symptomatic. When Public Health becomes aware of these potential public exposures, a thorough risk assessment is conducted to determine whether or not the general public is at risk of developing COVID-19.

Our risk assessment takes into consideration:

  • Public health measures in place at the business, while the ill staff member was working, including physical distancing, use of personal protective equipment including masks
  • The nature of the employee’s work and the extent and length of time they interact with the general public
  • How long the employee was at work while infectious
  • If there is more than one confirmed case of COVID-19 among employees working at the essential service business

In the event that public health is unable to identify all close contacts, York Region Public Health may issue a public notification providing the public with information about the dates and times of the exposure and any actions to be taken by exposed individuals . This may include the need for self-isolation, and in the event that COVID-19 symptoms develop, direction regarding the need for medical assessment and testing.

Where the risk assessment determines there is no elevated risk to the general public of contracting COVID-19 or when all close contacts can be identified through the interview process with the case, a notice will not be posted.
