The Saskatchewan Health Authority is warning people about possible COVID-19 exposure in several towns recently, including within Lloydminster.
Health officials have determined that a person travelled to several locations in eight towns while still infectious. It is believed this person was at Nelson Lumber at 6609 44 Street on October 1st and 2nd. This person had also been to the Lloydminster Home Depot on October 5th. A time for any of these visits has not been determined, however.
This person had also been to several locations in Esterhazy, Grayson, Prince Albert, Regina, Shellbrook, Wadena and Yorkton. A full list of these locations can be found on the SHA website.
In the meantime, people who were at any of these locations are told to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms over the next 14 days. If these symptoms present themselves, people should self-isolate and call HealthLink 8-1-1 for next steps. Testing is universally available to anyone who requests it, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not.
People are also advised to continue staying home if sick, wearing masks whenever physical distancing isn’t possible and frequently sanitizing and washing hands.
