Spread the Word, Not COVID-19 

**A message from the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit**

Colds, runny nose… and COVID-19. This winter, it’s extra difficult to determine if your child’s sniffles are something more serious.  


If your child is sick and showing COVID-19-like symptoms, keep them home. This helps prevent COVID-19 and ensure schools stay safe and open.


The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit reminds parents/guardians to screen a child each day before sending them to school or child care. Resources are in place to help you make the right call:

If you are unsure about your child’s symptoms and what to do next, call the Health Unit at 1-866-888-4577, ext. 5020.
