The local health unit added one recovery from COVID-19 and no cases in Haliburton on Wednesday placing the county at no active cases for the first time since March 31st. 

The region’s top doc Dr. Natalie Bocking said anytime we’re seeing case numbers lowered and certainly zero is as low as you can get, is a time to pause and congratulate each other for the good work done.

“I’d encourage folks in Halliburton to give themselves a pat on the back and to continue to encourage each other to keep up the good work. I think that overall across the region were continuing to see the numbers get lower,” she said.

Dr. Bocking said she doesn’t want people to be discouraged as she does expect some COVID activity for some time yet so it doesn’t mean that we can change Public Health measures as of yet, but it’s certainly moving in the right direction.
