The Windsor Essex County Health Unit has confirmed 5 additional cases of COVID-19 as of Wednesday, bringing the local total to 982. They say 566 people locally have recovered.

Cases increased from 977 on Tuesday June 2nd to 982 on Wednesday June 3rd.

Dr. Wajid Ahmed, Medical Officer of Health, says 3 of the 5 new are healthcare workers and no cases today are farm workers.

The Health Unit says there have been no additional deaths due to COVID-19 as of Wednesday and the local death toll stands at 66.

The Health Unit says there are ongoing outbreaks at two long-term care and retirement facilities:

  • Chartwell Royal Oak
  • Heron Terrace

The Health Unit said Tuesday they will no longer be providing the number of total tests conducted and the number of new pending tests each day due to the province’s expanded testing strategy.  Dr. Ahmed says the reason for this is that testing is conducted “in different settings, which is not directly reported to public health.”
