SDG – The warden of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry has gone into self-isolation after
returning from an eight-day cruise vacation outside Canada.
Frank Prevost, also mayor of the Township of South Glengarry, announced Sunday evening he is following the recommended government directive to self-isolate after being outside the country.
“I was out of the country for eight days on a cruise with my family. I am in good health and show no signs or symptoms of COVID-19,” said Warden Prevost. “As a precautionary measure and following the advice of the federal government, I will be in isolation for a planned period of 14 days.”
Prevost encourages residents of the area to follow the hand-washing, social-distancing and self-isolation protocols being encouraged by healthcare professionals.
“During the self-isolation period, I will continue working remotely and fulfilling my duties as best as possible,” he said.
The warden serves as head of the council of the United Counties of SDG, a position that changes hands each year among the 12 individuals seated at that table because the role is not directly elected.
