Health officials in the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark (LGL) District Health Unit are asking for those who attended the Perth Curling Club between Friday, March 5 and Friday, March 12, 2021 to watch for symptoms of COVID-19.

“Individuals who develop symptoms should isolate immediately and arrange to get tested at a local assessment centre in LGL or KFLA regions,” a Facebook post from the Leeds-Grenville-Lanark health unit said.

A Facebook post promoting a Mexican-themed event on Friday, Mar. 5 was circulated by the Perth Curling Club in the weeks leading up to the gathering.

Nearby Land O’Lakes Public School was closed for a period of time due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

These incidents occurred within the riding of Lanark—Frontenac—Kingston, whose current independent MPP, Randy Hillier, has taken a public stance against the regulations that have been put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. His actions, which include organizing a rally at Queen’s Park and attending an in-person church service against regulations, culminated in his temporary suspension from Twitter, and have drawn much public scrutiny and upset.
