SHA advises about potential COVID-19 exposure at local dentist clinic

The SHA has issued an advisory that there has been potential COVID-19 exposure at a local dentist shop recently.

The exposure happened at the Orion Dental Group between March 8th and 11th.  Normally, health officials would reach out to people there at the time to contact trace,  but they have been having difficulties obtaining a list of staff working at that location.

As such, the SHA has issued a public health notification so they could advise people who may have been exposed.

The SHA is asking anyone who was at this location at any time between the 8th and 11th to contact Public Health immediately and call 1-877-800-0002 to arrange a COVID-19 test.
