N.L. adds 1 new COVID-19 case, related to travel
Province has 6 active cases
There is one new case of COVID-19 being reported Newfoundland and Labrador on Sunday, a man between 20 and 39 years old in the Eastern Health region.
According to a Department of Health media release, the case is travel-related. The man is a resident of the province who returned home from work in Alberta.
The man is self-isolating and contact tracing by public health is underway. Anyone considered a close contact has been advised to quarantine.
Because of this case, public health officials are asking passengers who travelled on Air Canada Flight 7480 from Montreal to St. John's, arriving Wednesday, to call 811 to arrange testing.
The province now has six active cases.
There have been no new recoveries since Saturday's update. There have been 383 recoveries since March, and one person is in hospital due to the virus.
As of Sunday's update 76,321 people have been tested, including 191 more since Saturday.
It is unclear whether there will be a live COVID-19 briefing on Monday, as the provincial election campaign continues.
