While there remains a high level of uncertainty about the potential impact of the virus, Chatham is implementing actions based on guidance and recommendations from our Health Officers.
We are giving  priority to safeguarding the health and well-being of our community.
We want to be sure we can be as safe as we can be taking the precautions we should be taking – limiting contact, washing hands with soap and water, etc.
