No new cases of COVID 19 were confirmed in Grey Bruce in the past 24 hourrs and there are no outbreaks in any of our long-term care homes.  Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been 91 confirmed cases in the two counties,  78 of those people have recovered and none have died.

The Grey Bruce Health Unit confirms a false positive result in a previously announced COVID-19 lab report for a staff member in Grey Gables long-term care home.

After the initial positive test result was received on May 17, the sample was re-tested and second and third tests were undertaken. Those results all came back negative.

At the time of the first result, the individual went into self-isolation at their place of residence and the home was notified.

All outbreak protocols, case management and contact tracing activities were put in place to ensure safety while waiting for the later results.
