Statement by MP Jamie Schmale Regarding COVID-19

March 18, 2020
Water Level Information

The continued spread of COVID-19 in Canada and around the world has understandably raised concerns for many. The health and safety of the people of Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock is my top priority.

To do our part, my Lindsay constituency office will temporarily suspend in-person meetings. However, my staff remain at work and ready to serve by telephone and/or email at (705) 324-2400//toll free (866) 688-9881 or by email at

I encourage you to heed the expert advice by the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada and the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit. Please take every precaution to prevent the spread of the virus. Wash your hands often and keep your distance from others. We need to work together to get through this.

It’s important to remember that our supply chains are strong. Grocery stores have the capacity to keep items in stock. As such, there is no need to hoard products. Obviously purchase what you need and maybe a few extra items but also leave some for your neighbours.

Earlier today, the Government of Canada announced a series of economic measures to help individuals, their families and business owners. For more information visit:

Further, I encourage you to avoid all non-essential travel and if you are unwell, please stay home. If you are abroad, take the advice of officials and return home as soon as possible and self-quarantine for 14 days.

Information is changing very quickly. I will do my best to provide regular updates. In addition, the Government of Canada has established a website for updates regarding COVID-19 or the Corona Telephone Hotline (833)-784-4397.
