COVID-19 Guidance Updates

Ontario Ministry of Health Guidance: Public Health Ontario Reference Documents and Summaries:


COVID-19 directives revoked June 11 and replaced with guidance 

The Ministry of Health is now at Recovery Status, meaning they are resuming regular operations and supporting health sector stabilization.

On June 11, 2022, the remaining Directives were revoked and replaced with Ministry of Health guidance for health care workers and organizations. This includes guidance on when masks should be worn in hospitals and other health care settings.

To continue providing an additional layer of protection for the most vulnerable, masks will still be required in long-term care and retirement homes. Masking is recommended in higher-risk congregate living settings, such as shelters and group homes.

SURVEY: Do you provide prenatal resources or services?

The TBDHU, TBRHSC, and The Maternity Centre are running a survey of health care providers, pharmacies and community organizations within the District of Thunder Bay who provide resources, programming or services to prenatal clients (clients who are pregnant or the support partner to a pregnant person).

The goal is to understand what services are currently being offered as well as current gaps in prenatal programming.
This survey consists of about 15 questions that will only take about 5 minutes to complete. The survey will be open until Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 11:59 pm

Please also share this survey link with your networks in Thunder Bay and District.
