Huron-Perth | by Fadi Didi  
Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Miriam Klassen, says 73 people have tested negative for coronavirus, with two positives in St. Marys.

The Medical Officer of Health for Huron and Perth counties feels the region is on the right track in tackling the COVID-19 outbreak.

During a media conference call, Dr. Miriam Klassen says the novel coronavirus outbreak is unlike anything seen in our generation.

However, Klassen says the government has been keen on taking the advice of health professionals, when implementing policies meant to stop the spread of the virus.

So far in Huron and Perth counties, 101 people have been tested for COVID-19.

Two people in St. Marys have been confirmed with the virus, while 73 have tested negative, and 26 are still pending results.

One of the confirmed cases remains in critical condition in Stratford hospital.

Huron Perth Public Health is promoting a self-assessment tool, which can be accessed through the Province of Ontario website.

If the online assessment suggests you may be a carrier of the novel coronavirus, it is recommended you call your doctor's office, or Huron Perth Pubic Health, for a phone assessment.

Further action will be given by the assessor, following those steps.
