Two areas in COVID outbreak, including part of hospital


Chatham-Kent’s COVID case count is creeping upwards again.

Over the past week in Chatham-Kent, Public Health officials report a total of 43 new confirmed COVID-19 cases. The rolling seven-day average is up to six. Two weeks ago, the daily average sat at three.

Public Health officials remind readers these are only the cases that test positive at the COVID assessment centre or through official channels. Countless others conduct home testing and self isolate.

Furthermore, there are two places in outbreak. Officials at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance report there are six cases of health-care-acquired COVID-19 identified in the complex continuing care unit at the Chatham site.

Copper Terrace is also in outbreak, with seven cased tied to that retirement facility, according to CK Public Health.
