Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Resources

The World Health Organization (WHO) advises that the threat of a pandemic has become very real. Planning and preparing for locally confirmed cases and potential community spread of COVID-19 is underway.

Hamilton Public Health Services (PHS) is working with their health system partners and the Ministry of Health to ensure our city is prepared to respond to the situation as it evolves.

The goal of preparedness planning is to reduce the spread of the virus, protect those most at risk of becoming severely ill while waiting for potential treatment and vaccine options to be developed. Hamilton's Chief Medical Officer of Health has advised that the current risk of contracting COVID-19 in Hamilton, like the rest of Canada, remains low.

To date, one case of the virus has been confirmed in an individual who travelled outside the country. Other cases have been or are being investigated. PHS is following up with people who are in self-isolation, as well as providing infection control advice to organizations.

Hamilton's Chief Medical Officer of Health is encouraging residents to continue taking everyday precautions to prevent the spread of all respiratory illnesses. These precautions are outlined here: www.hamilton.ca/coronavirus

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 as identified in the City of Hamilton's link below or if you think you may have come into contact with an infected individual you can call the Hamilton Infectious Diseases Program at 905-546-2424 ext.7970. Questions can be emailed to phscovid19@hamilton.ca

Why electric buses are no substitute for Light Rail Transit

As part of Hamilton City Council’s deliberation of the city’s 2020 operating budget, Council spent “Transit Day” discussing Hamilton’s HSR operations.  At the same time, the Government of Ontario announced who would be sitting on the panel tasked with determining the future of LRT in Hamilton. 

These two events are of enormous importance to Hamilton’s future budgets, public transit system and levels of property tax that will be paid by existing and future Hamiltonians.
