  • Prevention is it

From the Northwestern Health Unit:
To prevent any viral illness, including COVID-19:
✅​Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
✅Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
✅Avoid close contact with people who are ill
✅Stay home when you are ill
✅Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
✅Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
✅Practice physical distancing​
✅Be prepared!​
✅Using a non-medical mask in public can help to slow the spread of COVID-19. Learn how to wear one properly​.
  • Or try this:

substitute 'community' for outside
and 'people' for inside

Thanks to all!

  • @kenorareccentre has not opened the Summer Awesome Adventures Day Camp registration. 
We are currently waiting to hear updates from the Ontario Government.  We are also keeping in mind new protocols that may be put in place to run a summer day camp.  We will keep everyone updated.  We hope to see all those smiling faces this summer.

  • Although using hand sanitizer is a good way to clean your hands to slow the spread of COVID-19, Kenora Fire and Emergency Services reminds you to be aware of proper storage and safe use of these flammable products.  It is important that you read and follow directions and warnings on hand sanitizer product labels. 
Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is flammable and may give off flammable vapours, which could ignite if exposed to open flame or an ignition source. 
When using hand sanitizer, follow these safe use and storage tips: •  Keep containers in an upright position and properly sealed to avoid leakage;
•  Containers should not be left in direct sunlight to avoid spillage or leakage from pressurization of the container;
•  Keep away from open flames and sources of heat;
•  Be especially careful if attempting to smoke, light candles, or use a gas stove immediately after applying hand sanitizer;
•  When using hand sanitizer, hands should be rubbed together until they are completely dry; and
•  Always read product labels carefully and follow the warnings and directions of use. 
While reports have surfaced about hand sanitizer catching fire or spontaneously combusting from being kept in a hot vehicle, this is not accurate.  The Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) advise that the rate of vapour leakage from a personal container of hand sanitizer left in a hot vehicle does not result in enough vapours to cause concerns.
