Wales Home confirms false positive

After issuing a letter Friday advising the Wales Home community of a confirmed case of COVID-19 among the staff of the long term care facility (CHSLD) on Norton 2, Executive Director Brendalee Piironen confirmed on Sunday that the case is now considered a false positive.
In a post on Facebook, Piironen said that the Wales Home employee who was told they tested positive for COVID-19, was retested on Saturday and received official confirmation after that second test that they were actually negative. In an official update issued later in the day, the director clarified that the employee who originally tested positive will have to receive another negative result before being allowed to return to work, as per public health regulations.
