Lack of info dangerous, reckless

We implore Northern Health to release the proper information to ensure vigilance in following social distancing rules in our community. We have been informed that there are "30 cases" in the NH region, but nothing specific.

We implore Northern Health to release the proper information to ensure vigilance in following social distancing rules in our community.

We have been informed that there are "30 cases" in the NH region, but nothing specific. How can our community prevent the spread of the virus, and practice vigilance if they are not given the location of the confirmed cases? Without names, of course, but privacy is not the issue now, we have to protect the community!

We have seen people meeting friends for walks, people allowing children from seperate households to play outside, even some gatherings in backyards when we were out on a social distanced walk.

If we were informed properly, the community might respond appropriately. To keep this information from the Northern Health communities is a dangerous and reckless decision. We deserve to know!
