For the second straight day, Newfoundland and Labrador has recorded a new case of COVID-19.
The news comes after the last of the region’s previous cases were marked resolved on Friday.
Throughout the pandemic, the province has recorded 264 cases. Only two of them now remain active, since three people have died and 259 have recovered.
The latest patient, a female under the age of 20, is a close contact of the patient that was identified Tuesday, which involves a male between 20-29 years old who recently returned from Ontario. Both cases are in the Central Health region.
