The Quebec government has launched a map of COVID-19 alert levels in light of an upward trend in cases. The back to school season has generated an uptick in cases but overall, the situation is running smoothly according to Director of Public Health Dr. Mylène Drouin. Parties, dinners, weddings, and social activities have resulted in a small increase in diagnoses and Drouin is asking people to be especially cautious, particularly if they work in the healthcare system.
The map includes four levels of alert – Vigilance (green), Early Warning (yellow), Moderate Alert (orange) and Maximum Alert (red) and are established on the basis of epidemiological situation, transmission control and healthcare system capacity.
The Vaudreuil-Soulanges region is currently coded as green, or Vigilance but all residents are reminded to continue to wear masks and wash hands regularly.
