“We are not talking about a contagion of the staff of the Mile Public House, but rather a group of young people who are already associated with an outbreak”, she says.

“We have three events in the Montérégie region, which include these same young people-there. It speaks of more than twenty young people to be positive for all three events.”

Young people have also participated in festivals, in private homes.

“Some of these young people were in one, sometimes two, and some to all three events. For events in parties in private, our investigators in public health are able to identify them just by contacting the case,” said Dr. Loslier.
