With one more person having recovered, Sarnia-Lambton has just two confirmed and active cases of COVID-19, Lambton Public Health said this morning.

That’s the lowest number of infections since the pandemic began in March.

Just one new case has been confirmed over the past two weeks and Bluewater Health has been COVID-free for almost three weeks.

Overall, Sarnia-Lambton has had 286 cases and 25 deaths.

Meanwhile, Sarnia is asking residents to consider wearing a face covering such as a non-medical cloth mask or bandana, when visiting parks and other public places to reduce the risk of transmission whenever physical distancing becomes difficult.

Lambton County health officials are currently reviewing the question of face mask use.

Because of the pandemic, the availability of cooling centres normally used by residents who don’t have access to air condition is limited.

With a heat warning in effect and a high of 33 C. expected today, Lambton Public Health is urging that if you or someone you know needs assistance to call 519-383-8331 for possible access points.
