The City of Granby said on Sunday that three new cases of COVID-19, were registered in the day camp Vacation Club Youth (CVJ), which is established at the coordination site of the high school in the Upper Town, which brings the total to six in this establishment.
After the three infected people last week, the CVJ has conducted a mass screening on Friday. Two members of the animation team of the camp and a child have received a positive diagnosis.
All facilitators and the vast majority of young people were tested on this occasion. All of the staff and some of the children have since been placed in isolation for 14 days, from may 9 to July 22. After the first case, the City had closed the camp on Thursday and Friday, and it had yet to be closed Monday. It appears that the suspension of activities will continue until at least 22 July.
A clinical screening mobile will be dispatched to undergo two series of tests all the people who visited the day camp since the 1st of July.
The department of public health noted, however, that the risk of transmission was judged to be low for the children who attended the site of the Upper Town. It has, however, advised the parents to monitor the appearance of symptoms in their young people.
