Public Health is working collaboratively with the hospital to manage this case effectively.
The hospital continues to ensure all appropriate Personal Protective Equipment and cleaning practices are in place and is confident in its ability to provide exceptional care to its communities.
All case and contact management is the sole role of Public Health.
As case and contact management unfolds, all high risk contacts will be notified within 24 hours; this includes staff and public.
