A long term care home in Wallaceburg is dealing with another large COVID-19 outbreak.

It’s not the first large COVID-19 outbreak Fairfield Park has dealt with during the pandemic, either. The largest one reached 100 cases among residents and staff and lasted two months in early 2021.

The other current COVID-19 outbreak reported by the local health unit is at Riverview Gardens long-term care facility in Chatham and it has 13 cases. That outbreak was declared November 10, 2022.

No new deaths linked to COVID-19 were reported this week.
