No new COVID-19 cases in Kingston for second straight day
For the second straight day, Kingston reported zero new cases of COVID-19 on Monday.
The good news comes after an outbreak was declared nearly two weeks ago connected to Binh's Nail Salon that has so far seen 33 cases connected to the business.
Dr. Kieran Moore, Kingston's Chief Medical Officer of Health, said it appears the peak of the outbreak was reached early week and took to Twitter to thank the public for the help keeping COVID-19 cases as low as possible.
