As a precaution, Huron Perth Public Health has temporarily closed the Zehr’s Country Markets in Bayfield and in Dashwood.

There has been a positive case of COVID-19 associated with the Bayfield location. Based on current information, the risk to the public is low.

Anyone who was at the Bayfield Zehr’s Country Market on August 6, 7, 8, 10 or 11 is encouraged to self- monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, and arrange for assessment and possibly testing if necessary.

“The premises owner is fully cooperative and supports the decision to temporarily close while more information is gathered,” says Dr. Miriam Klassen, Medical Officer of Health.

As the investigation continues there may be further updates.
