The Co-founder of Blue Bayfield says they’ve started planning for an elaborate celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd.
Ray Letheran says it’s time for people to re-focus on what we’re doing as individuals as it relates to the Earth.
“We’re certainly all aware of the tremendous number of storms, floods, fires, droughts around the globe. So we often forget that we have responsibilities, as individuals, to make changes. And although many people around Huron County have made changes in their life, it’s time to re-evaluate what we can do,” Letheran explained.
A COVID-19 Outbreak has been declared on the Inpatient Unit at Seaforth Community Hospital.
Quality, Patient Safety & Infection Control Manager Erica Jensen explains what an outbreak means.
“An outbreak refers to two or more COVID positive cases. So one of our control measures in response to outbreaks is that we restrict the family and caregiver presence on the unit to essential need only, so that is for palliative patients,” Jensen stated.
The inpatient unit at Seaforth Community Hospital is closed to admissions due to a COVID-19 outbreak, according to the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA).
HPHA released a statement on Saturday announcing that an outbreak had been declared, meaning at least two patients or team members have tested positive for COVID-19.
The hospital is now conducting contact tracing and testing for people in the unit.
Those who may have been affected by the outbreak are in the process of being notified.

Researchers at Western University showed undergraduate students from 23 universities across six provinces an eight-minute video detailing the potential consequences of the habit. What they found over the course of the 45-day study was that the educational short film was enough to make regular users want to cut back or stop vaping altogether.

FOR well over forty years the Summer Resort known as Bruce Beach on Lake Huron’s friendly shore has been the holiday rendezvous for health-seekers, pleasure-seekers and tor those who were just tired. From a very modest beginning the popularity and the population have grown by leaps and bounds. The need of having some sort of historical souvenir which would preserve the happy annals of the Beach had been keenly felt for a long time. It was not, however, until the year 1915 that the meeting of this need took concrete form.
Shortly after the Bruce Beach Historical Society was formed in the Fall of 1981, I was having lunch with a friend. When asked why I had given up curling that year, one of the two or three reasons I mentioned was my interest in publishing history of Bruce Beach, where my family had been spending their summers for more than sixty years. "How fortunate you are to have such roots", replied my friend.
