Public Health Sudbury & Districts advises of a potential high-risk public exposure to COVID-19

Public Health Sudbury & Districts is advising the public of a potential high-risk exposure to COVID-19, specifically for anyone who attended a private gathering at 390 Spring Bay Road, M’Chigeeng First Nation, on Manitoulin Island, from December 22, 2021, to December 29, 2021.

Actions to take for potential exposure:

Any individual who was present on the dates listed in the potential exposure above is advised to follow public health guidance:

  • If you are not fully immunized, self-isolate immediately for 10 days from your last exposure during the time period noted above.
  • If you are fully immunized, you do not need to self-isolate but should monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If you develop any symptoms, self-isolate immediately, get tested if eligible for PCR testing (Government of Ontario), COVID-19 testing appointments can be arranged through the Manitoulin Health Centre Assessment Centre by calling 705.368.2300 during regular business hours.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts is reminding everyone to follow public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 including the more transmissible variants of concern. Though no single measure on its own is 100% perfect, wearing a mask and ensuring you are fully vaccinated will reduce your risk of contracting or experiencing severe COVID-19 symptoms. By using many layers of protection against COVID-19 you lower your risks of getting or spreading COVID-19. The safest options are to limit close contact to your own household members, stay home and do not attend work or school when ill, work from home if possible, avoid non-essential travel, and remember to practise physical distancing, wear your mask, and wash your hands. For all outings, continue to screen yourself for symptoms and practise COVID-safe behaviours.

For more information or if you have questions, please visit or call Public Health Sudbury & Districts at 705.522.9200 (toll-free 1.866.522.9200).
