The Village of Lytton is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely.  

Here are some key reminders from The World Health Organization:

  • Wash your hands frequently - Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub,
  • Maintain social distancing - Maintain at least 2 metres (6 feet) distance between yourself and other people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth - Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick,
  • Practice respiratory hygiene - Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
  • If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical care early - Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
  • When to mask up – You only need to wear a mask if you are coughing, sneezing or taking care of someone with COVID-19. Masks are only effective when used with frequent handwashing.

In addition to the usual cold and flu season response, the Village is taking the following actions:

  • Temporarily closing the office to the public,
  • Arranging for more frequent cleans of high touch points.
  • Working from home if necessary to self-isolate or to reduce contact and exposure,
  • Removing picnic tables and benches from parks and along Main Street to encourage social distancing,
  • Temporarily restricting public access to Council meetings in accordance with Ministerial Order M083.
