Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) is alerting the public that an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 attended the Stirling Fair on Aug. 14 and 15.
The health unit says individuals who were at the Stirling Fair are considered to be low-risk contacts of a case of COVID-19.
HPEPH clarifies that a low-risk contact means individuals are not required to isolate unless they develop symptoms (even mild ones) or if they test positive for COVID-19.
They also advise those who attended the fair on both or either of those days to monitor for symptoms diligently.
If symptoms develop, individuals are to isolate and seek testing.
