The Windsor Essex County Health Unit has confirmed 22 new cases of COVID-19 as of Tuesday, bringing the local total to 1,602. They say 869 people locally have recovered.

Cases increased from 1,580 on Monday June 29th to 1,602 on Tuesday June 30th.

The Health Unit says 6 of the 22 new cases are from the agri-farm sector and 4 are healthcare workers. Dr. Wajid Ahmed, Medical Officer of Health for Windsor Essex says the remaining cases are still under investigation due to a large number of individuals the Health Unit is tracking.  The Health Unit said Monday their staff tracks 8-12 contacts per positive agri-farm case, totalling between 3,000 and 5,000 additional persons for daily followup for case and contact management.

There have been no additional deaths due to COVID-19 as of Tuesday and the local death toll stands at 68.

The Health Unit says two long-term care homes, Village of Aspen Lake and Extendicare Tecumseh, are under outbreak.

As of Tuesday, the Health Unit says 6 workplaces are under outbreak. These workplaces have 2 or more cases (2 workplaces in Kingsville, 4 workplaces in Leamington).

Mask Enforcement

The Health Unit is warning businesses that they must have policies in place to require customers to wear masks.  Dr. Ahmed says the Health Unit received “two or three” complaints about businesses that did not have mask policies. He says enforcement officers are taking a progressive approach to enforcement starting with education on the requirements.
