No new resident cases were recorded over the weekend, but two more staff members tested positive, bringing the total since the outbreak began to 112. Twenty-seven of the 68 resident cases had been resolved, as had 16 of the 44 staff infections. “It’s terrible,” Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) Medical Officer of Health Dr. Paul Roumeliotis said of the deaths. “It’s the same as we had in Plantagenet [Pinecrest nursing home] as well; once it gets in, it’s just terrible.” All outstanding test results at the resi- dence had been returned. More testing will be conducted at the residence later this week. Dr. Roumeliotis said Red Cross personnel and paramedics had helped fill a staffing shortage due to the outbreak over the weekend. The residence was us- ing a three-to-four-day outlook to determine staffing needs. The EOHU area reported 28 new COVID cases over the weekend, 20 of which were in Prescott-Russell. The new cases brought the total since the pandemic began to 550

Dr. Roumeliotis said most of the new cases outside long-term care outbreaks had been linked, which had made it easier to trace and isolate patients. “That’s a very good indicator for our area, knowing exactly where they are,” he said. “I’d be more worried if we had no epi-link and we saw that large, unexplained presence of the virus.” Elsewhere in the region, one case was reported at Centre éducatif Les Petits Tresors in Alfred. Twenty-one COVID cases were confirmed in EOHU schools, but only one institutions - École élémentaire catholique
