The Sarnia Primary Control Group (SPCG) met today regarding developments related to COVID-19.
Lambton Public Health (LPH) has now confirmed two additional positive cases of COVID-19 and one recovery, bringing the active case load to 11, which includes two outbreaks located at Twin Lakes Terrace Long-Term Care Home and the other at an unidentified workplace in Sarnia.
The Sarnia-Lambton area has seen an increase in the number of confirmed cases recently. LPH is reminding citizens to limit their number of close contacts and continue practicing all public health safety measures in order to protect the community and reduce the risk of local transmission.
With positive cases reported in three Sarnia-Lambton schools, local health officials are encouraging all symptomatic children to be tested. For more information please visit: https://lambtonpublichealth.ca/covid-19-school-and-child-care-testing-expansion/
