An outbreak at Vision Nursing Home in Sarnia appears to have stabilized, with no new cases reported again today. Since the pandemic began, 26 residents and 28 staff have been infected and 10 residents have died.

Six other institutional outbreaks have been resolved.

Overall, Sarnia-Lambton has had 276 cases and 25 deaths, including 16 people who were residents of senior homes.

Meanwhile, starting today, Sarnia Transit fares will be charged again, but at a reduced rate of $1.50, half the normal fare.

For regular transit users, purchasing a monthly pass or sheets of tickets is still the most economical method, the city said.
