The world has been hit hard by the rapidly spreading coronavirus. The infection has spread to nearly all corners of the globe, and everyone feels threatened by it. The threats are not only health-wise, since businesses and other operations have been hindered. Economies of both local and national governments in most countries have been hit hard as well.
However, with various Canadian regions returning to normal, the Haut-Saint-Laurent area is also finding a way of boosting its economy as people get back to work. However, several measures must be observed to attain the targets of stimulating the economy. Necessary health measures to follow are highlighted below.
The spread of coronavirus can escalate when people get into contact. Therefore, to minimize contact, health groups, and other groups interested in the welfare of Haut-Saint-Laurent are advising people and the government to observe the physical distance between people. For example, on public transport, the number of people boarding a vehicle train or other means is reduced to offer space for the advised social distance.
Sanitizing and Disinfecting Surfaces
Haut-Saint-Laurent residents are required to observe sanitization procedures. Public points have cleaning stations where anyone can wash his or her hands at any time. Furthermore, fumigating public places helps to disinfect the areas and curb the spread of the disease. The virus that is adhered to surfaces is killed through the disinfecting process.
Barring Public Gatherings
Initially, all public gatherings in Haut-Saint-Laurent were banned. However, as a way of boosting the economy, things are gradually getting back to normal. However, other meetings are still illegal. For instance, the region doesn’t allow political rallies to avoid the overcrowding of people. Nonetheless, even in other social gatherings allowed, residents must observe the health measures outlined. For example, social distancing, sanitizing, and wearing face masks must be done as required.
