Two more deaths due to COVID-19 in the Region of Peel have been reported.
Two men in their 70s, one from Brampton and one from Mississauga, were under the care of healthcare professionals at Trillium Health Partners in Mississauga and have both died from COVID-19.
The Region of Peel has now lost four residents during this pandemic.
“Losing a loved one is among the most tragic things anyone can experience,” said Dr. Lawrence Loh, Interim Medical Officer of Health at Peel Public Health.
“But the grief of losing someone to a disease like this so suddenly is difficult for anyone to comprehend.”
“Each life that is lost is a tragic reminder of what we all face today. But by taking individual action, we can help manage further spread and further tragedy,” continued Dr. Loh.
“Stay home. Only go out once a week for groceries or medicine. Stay two metres apart when you do go out. Do your part.”
Peel Public Health is reminding residents to stay home if sick or returning to Canada from abroad in the last 14 days.
Along with recommending that residents stay home as much as possible, they are also advising to only make trips for essential reasons such as groceries, medications or healthcare.
In terms of exercise, it should only be done alone, with a pet or with one other member from your household.
