When it comes to COVID-19, KFLA is back in the green.
The local health unit officially downgraded the region’s community status to green on Friday afternoon, which is the best a community can be on the four level colour warning system. As of Friday there are six active cases in the community.
“KFLA Public Health has been closely monitoring the epidemiological evidence and today, Dr. Kieran Moore, medical officer of health has announced a change in the community status level of COVID-19 from yellow to green. The green community status level indicates that active positive cases are rare, no active outbreaks, local hospital capacity, quick case and contact follow-up, and full testing capacity,” the health unit said in a news release.
Two new cases were reported on Friday, one a male in his 70s the other a female in her 60s. Both cases were travel related.
