Niagara Health reports an all-time high of walk-ins for testing at its three assessment centres as Niagara enters Stage 3.

Walk-ins more than doubled yesterday, totalling a record 251 of the 451 patients tested at the Niagara Falls and St. Catharines centres (Welland is not open on Thursdays).

Walk-ins have been higher than usual each day this week, ranging from 143 on Monday to 251 patients yesterday.

People wishing to visit loved ones inside long-term care homes must provide a negative test result.
