Danger of Epidemic Must Not Be Forgotten

"Conditions are never so bad but what they can be worse. The utmost care must be exercised to prevent danger from disease at this flood time.
The Health Department has issued a warning about water. All water must be boiled for at least ten minutes. Bringing the water to a boil does not kill all germs - a ten minute boiling is necessary.
As a safety precaution this office would suggest that the water from every well and water service be given this treatment until such time as the water from that source has been tested and passed by the Ontario Department of Health."
