Current numbers
Today, we received confirmation of one new case of COVID-19 in our community. Last night, we also received confirmation of one new positive case for September 22; this case is not connected to the first cluster of cases. Public health is leading the contact tracing work with close contacts and following up accordingly.

This brings our total cases to 43 (39 lab confirmed, 4 epi-linked). No new data on recovery has been received since last week. 35 of the 43 cases have been confirmed as cleared, leaving up to 8 active cases in the community.
