24 up; 28 down


As we enter the workweek in Lockdown, CK Public Health figures show a decline of four active cases over the weekend.

We are down to 73 active cases in the municipality. However, that is the result of 28 cases deemed resolved versus 24 new reported cases.

The home joins Hudson Manor in Tilbury as the institutional areas listed in outbreak currently in Chatham-Kent.

Three workplaces in the municipality are also in outbreak.

In total, five people remain in hospital combatting COVID, while 10 have died locally over the past year.

  1. It isn’t even close to a “lockdown”- Ford has his fingers in his ears, ignoring 153 ICU Doctors who signed a letter pleading for stricter measures.
    Essential worker vaccination blitzes and sick pay so the infected don’t spread at work!!
    CLOSE the big box stores and Malls – let small business open to reap the giant profits this time.
    Stay-at-home order is unfortunately needed as well, because of selfish shop-a-holics.

    And 2 less Covid cases in CK today is because. they. died.
