Returning travellers ordered to self-isolate inside residence

The Haldimand-Norfolk Medical Officer of Health has ordered that any resident of Haldimand or Norfolk counties returning to Canada as of March 22 immediately self-isolate for 14 days inside their residence upon arrival home. 

The order prohibits these individuals from travelling outside the home while the order is in effect, except for medical treatment. 

“Go directly home upon arrival in Canada,” says Shanker Nesathurai, Medical Officer of Health. “Order groceries for delivery, or call upon friends or family for assistance – do not make any stops before going home.”

The order is part of the Health Unit’s COVID-19 containment strategy, which also includes the limiting of public gatherings and strict social distancing protocols.
