Summer is a wonderful time of year. It’s warm, sunny, the pools and beaches are full of people and many residents are on vacation. Questions about health-related issues like extreme heat, insects and toxic plants come up during the summer months. Ottawa Public Health offers a wealth of information on how to stay safe and healthy. They share information on what do to avoid heat related illnesses during heat waves. They also publish beach water sampling results and inform residents on how to prevent Lyme disease.
Ottawa Public Health (OPH) provides public health programs and services for you and all residents of Ottawa.
Have a great, safe and healthy summer!
