Sudbury area records two new COVID-19 cases; warning issued about possible exposure at restaurant


Public Health Sudbury and Districts is reporting two new COVID-19 cases and it is warning anyone who visited a restaurant in Markstay-Warren of a potential ‘low-risk exposure’ to the virus.

That brings to 96 the number of COVID-19 cases in Public Health’s area, which takes in Greater Sudbury, Espanola, Manitoulin Island and the District of Sudbury.

One case is from Greater Sudbury and the other is from the Sudbury district. Both are self-isolating and it’s not known how they were exposed to the virus.

“In addition, Public Health is advising anyone who visited Kate’s Kountry Kitchen on Sept. 4 and 5, from the hours of noon and 9 p.m., of a potential low-risk exposure to COVID-19.

“Public Health is working with the owner/operator to determine if individuals can be contacted directly. However, Public Health might not have information to contact everyone who may have been exposed.”

Kate’s Kountry Kitchen is located on Highway 17, about halfway between Sudbury and North Bay. It describes itself as a family-style restaurant, truck stop and bakery.

These cases are the first for the Sudbury area in almost a month. Two people here have died from COVID-19.

Updates about COVID-19 testing, confirmed cases, and outbreaks in Greater Sudbury, the District of Sudbury, and the District of Manitoulin are posted online.
