Reports

​Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Brant County Health Unit (BCHU) continues to actively monitor the situation in collaboration with provincial and national health agencies and stakeholders, including the local hospital and community agencies.

BCHU is working with our partners in the health care system to monitor, detect, and if needed, isolate any possible COVID-19 case.

If you need to speak with someone directly, please call 519-753-4937 and press '1'. Our phone lines are staffed 8:30 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. on weekends. You can also email your questions to covid19@bchu.org.

BCHU does not do in-person assessment or testing but refers to the Assessment Centre at the Brant Community Healthcare System when those meeting the case definition are identified through our contact centre.

The Ministry of Health and Long-term Care has added COVID-19 as a designated disease reportable under Ontario's public health legislation. This means BCHU is able to quickly and effectively take all necessary measures to investigate, complete lab tests and do case and contact management to prevent and control further spread of infection.

If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, use thisself-assessment tool, developed by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to help determine if you need to seek further care.
