Today, Dr. Kieran Moore, Medical Officer of Health at KFL&A Public Health confirmed a COVID-19 positive case at the Amherstview Golf Course at Golf Course Road in Amherstview. As a result, all patrons who attended this facility on June 22, 23, or 24 are required to get tested and self-isolate pending a negative test result. If after this time, a client develops symptoms they are required to self-isolate again and to get re-tested.
The owners of the golf club had previously advised that one of the patrons of Binh’s Nails Salon had recently played golf at the club.
“The health and safety of the patrons and staff of the Amherstview Golf Course are our top priority,” said Dr. Kieran Moore. “At this time, there is no evidence of propagation. The golf course will remain open.”
