The quarantined cases include children under the age of 12, who are too young to receive a vaccination. To protect them, individuals are asked to please stay in your immediate family bubble. This is a temporary measure to help limit potential exposures and prevent community spread.

If you suspect exposure to a positive case and awaiting notification from public health, please self-quarantine and get tested no sooner than seven (7) days following the event. Self-monitor for early symptoms that include diarrhea, fever, cough, tiredness, or loss of taste or smell. If any of these symptoms develop, please contact your healthcare provider for guidance.
