While the pandemic is not over and the virus continues to circulate, Dr. Ethan Toumishey,  HPEPH  Medical Officer of Health and CEO, said COVID-19 rates in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties are headed in the right direction.

“Since the last board meeting there has been an encouraging decline in the number of high-risk cases in the community (from 357 to 45). This positive trend is largely due to the ongoing efforts of residents who have continued to follow public health recommendations and have gotten vaccinated,” said Dr. Toumishey.
