Health Unit hosting virtual town halls regarding COVID-19
Local residents are encouraged to attend upcoming “Talk With the Doc” virtual town halls being presented by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit (HKPRDHU).
Acting medical officer of health, Dr. Ian Gemmill, will host the “Talk With the Doc” sessions scheduled for February 16, from 1 to 2 pm and March 2, from 1 to 2 pm.
During the online information sessions, Dr. Gemmill will provide COVID-19 updates and answer the audience’s questions. Topics will include information on the local COVID-19 cases and transmission rates, the rollout of vaccines in Haliburton County, Northumberland County and the City of Kawartha Lakes and HKPRDHU’s ongoing pandemic response.
“We want local residents to be fully informed about what is going on in their communities when it comes to the pandemic,” says Dr. Gemmill. “These virtual information sessions are just another way in which we can engage with our residents and be sure everyone has the information that they need to help to protect themselves and to stop the spread of COVID-19.”
To attend either “Talk with the Doc” information session, visit the HKPRDHU website.
Participants can register for a session and submit a question for Dr. Gemmill prior to the event. Once registered, participants will receive a link to join the session on the day of the event.
Space is limited for each virtual event, and is available on a first come, first serve basis.
