PHSD rings alarm on COVID-19 …

Public Health Sudbury & Districts is sounding the alarm to ramp up measures to protect against COVID-19.

In the last seven days, 85 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the service area bringing the total of active cases to 98.

All but one of those cases are in Greater Sudbury most related to outbreaks or close contact.

Another COVID-19 death was also reported by the agency.

The health unit has also declared a COVID-19 outbreak this morning in Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School in Greater Sudbury after one additional individual tested positive for the virus.
This brings the total cases at the school to three, one of which has screened positive for variants of concern.
Public Health has not dismissed the entire school; however, as directed by the School Board, the school will remain closed up to and including March 5.

To date, the agency says 28 COVID-19 cases have either screened positive or been confirmed for the more transmissible virus mutations, called variants of concern.

Health Sciences North is reporting they have admitted five people, but none of their test results have been completed.

Algoma Public Health has no new cases in the last 48 hours, with five active cases and one person in hospital.
