Shahab says there is concern over multi-jurisdictional outbreak from PA gospel centre

The province’s chief medical health officer was not mincing words when speaking Thursday about a Prince Albert gospel center that staged several events between September 14 and October 4 which has resulted in some positive cases of COVID-19.

“This is patricularly concerning.” Shahab said. “As a result of this, we are likely to see COVID cases in communities throughout the north and far north. It is critical that everyone who attended on those days and at those events self-isolate for 14 days and seek testing if symptomatic.

He says this serves as a stark reminder of what can happen if we let our guard down and what can happen if provincial guidelines that have been established are not followed.

With fall here and more activities moving indoors, Shahab also once again stressed with Thanksgiving weekend approaching to look at what you are doing and make needed changes if necessary.

“I strongly encourage everyone to reset their households, shrink them to immediate family if possible and reduce gatherings, if you do get together, and stick to your extended household,” Shahab said.

The comments from Shahab come on a day where 18 new cases and 13 recoveries were announced.  The new cases means provincially, we have surpassed the 2,000 case total since testing started in March.
