A News Release from the Ontario Ministry of Health

Posted February 27th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

TORONTO — Today (this February 27th), Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health, confirmed that the husband of Ontario’s fifth case of COVID-19 has tested positive for the virus. The man, in his 60s, is currently in self-isolation.

“We are working alongside Toronto Public Health, who is now and will continue to be in regular contact with this individual during their self-isolation period,” said Dr. Williams.

Toronto Public Health continues to actively engage in contact tracing and case management, including following up with the individual and his close contacts. The risk of being infected with COVID-19 continues to be very low for Canadians and for Ontarians in particular. 

Dr. Williams will be joined by Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health for Toronto, to provide an update on the situation at the regularly scheduled 3:00 p.m. media briefing on Thursday, February 27 at the Queen’s Park media studio.
