Have questions about schools, vaccines, and COVID-19? They just might be answered at a virtual meeting with Dr. Natalie Bocking, medical officer of health for Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge on Sept. 28. 

From 7-8 p.m., Dr. Bocking will provide parents, grandparents, guardians and caregivers an overview of current COVID-19 concerns, as well as the status of youth vaccinations and more. She’ll also answer questions about school and children-related  COVID-19 issues.

“We know there are many questions that parents and guardians have about COVID-19 now that school is back this fall,” said Dr. Bocking in a press release. “We ask people to submit their questions and attend this virtual session as it will be very informative and helpful to address any concerns and clear up confusion.”

Those who wish to submit questions to Dr. Bocking can submit them by noon on September 28, by visiting the Health Unit website (www.hkpr.on.ca).

The event will be live on the HKPRDHU YouTube channel, and a recording will be available to watch after the event.
