Coronavirus: One New Case of COVID-19 in NL on Sunday

Health officials in Newfoundland and Labrador reported one new case of COVID-19 on Sunday.

The single case is related to international travel and involves a man between the ages of 20 and 39 years old in the Eastern Health region.

It’s also the first day in weeks that there have been no new cases linked to community spread since the outbreak of the UK variant in the Eastern Health region.

There is also one new recovery, which means the number of active cases remains at 87. Eight-five of those cases are in the Eastern Health region, with one in Labrador-Grenfell Health and the other in the Western Health region.

There are three people in hospital with the virus, with all three being treated in the intensive care unit.

Also, as of today, anyone 70 and older who was unable to pre-register for vaccination due to alphabetical priority can now do so.

Meanwhile, an investigation continues into the source of a positive case reported March 2 involving a health care worker at Curtis Memorial Hospital in St. Anthony.
