There has been a spike of 14 new cases reported in the past 24 hours in Grey Bruce.

As you are all aware, we have been testing a larger segment of the population.  As we are testing more, we have been expecting an increase in confirmed positive cases.

Nevertheless, this spike further affirms the evidence of the community spread and that the level of risk warrants continuing practicing physical and social distancing regardless of the location in Grey and Bruce.

As we indicated in previous Situation Reports – data on individual cases will not be reported going forward.
