Wednesday’s dashboard update continues to show no hospitalizations in the region due to COVID-19. 

Another 86 cases of the virus were added, bringing the number of active cases to 458. 

However, late last week the province announced that PCR tests would only be given to symptomatic people living or working in high-risk settings or part of a vulnerable population. The general public has been told to avoid seeking a PCR test and if you are showing symptoms to assume you have the virus and to self-isolate.
