Both are currently self-isolating. Moore called the two new cases “low-risk” for the community.

These two new cases bring the region’s active case total up to three, with 108 total cases since the pandemic began, and 105 cases resolved.

The other active case is linked to a COVID-19 outbreak at the nail salon that began in late June. All other cases linked to that outbreak have since been resolved.
