The health unit is reminding people to respect the Arctic Cold conditions.
"It's so cold, you can easily get frostbite pretty quickly, with these temperatures," says Thomas Nabb, the manager responsible for environmental health.
Anybody exhibiting symptoms of frostbite -- or hypothermia -- should seek treatment right away, he adds.
The wind chill today is expectected to improve, but it still means a high of - 34 C with a risk of frostbite.
Signs and symptoms of frostbite:
- pale, gray, waxy skin that is cold to the touch
- swelling and blistering of the skin
- numbness and localized pain on the affected area
Signs and symptoms of hypothermia:
- slurred speech,
- lack of coordination,
