Hastings and Prince Edward Public Health is shedding light on standard drink sizes.

It’s part of the health units Rethink Your Drinking campaign, which highlights the importance of following the Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines.

Public Health Nurse Stephanie MacDonald says the standard size for a five per cent beer shouldn’t be more than 12 ounces.

The health unit may host an event at LCBO locations in the area during February to give people a better idea on what standard drinking sizes look like.

The Renfrew County and District Health Unit wrapped up its campaign in the fall.
