A Chatham-Kent man and woman have both tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to eight.

One of the eight cases was newly resolved. There was also a positive case from a Windsor resident who was employed in Chatham.

“There should be no more guesswork when it comes to what is expected of residents, states Chatham-Kent’s Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Colby. “The fate of our community, especially our most vulnerable citizens, is quite literally in our hands. What you choose to do, or choose not to do matters greatly. Make the right choices.”

The male, 45, and the female, 43 are self-isolating in the same home and began isolation prior to receiving their test results, at the request of CK Public Health officials. Their close contacts have been informed and have also begun a 14 day self isolation.

It is still under investigation whether the case is related to travel or community transmission.
