Ottawa Public Health Alert - Risks of Counterfeit Prescription DrugsThis week, the Ottawa Police Service and Ottawa Public Health issued an alert​ to warn residents about counterfeit prescription drugs in the City of Ottawa. IT is suspected that these drugs have been involved in recent life-threatening overdoses. Counterfeit pills can be manufactured to look almost identical to prescription opioids such as Oxycontin or Percocet. Parents can help reduce the risk of drug use by staying informed. Ottawa Public Health has some great overdose prevention information.


Ottawa Public Health (OPH) Immunization - A reminder that parents are required to report all immunizations done at the doctor's office to OPH.  Under this Act, OPH has the authority to suspend students from school whose records are not up to date. Due to the size of our District, OPH is dividing its surveillance campaign into two phases.  The first phase of notification letters to parents alerting them of missing documentation was sent out on November 15, 2016 and the second on November 22, 2016.  Suspensions for the first group will commence on February 8, 2017 and for the second group on February 22, 2017 so it is very important to ensure your child's immunizations are up to date.  Immunization protects children from many serious diseases that are easily spread in schools.  For more information, contact OPH at 613-580-6744.
