Public health officials have declared a COVID-19 outbreak inside a long-term care home in Sarnia after a staff member tested positive for the disease.

No residents on Twin Lakes Terrace, a 60-bed facility on Murphy Road, came out positive as of Friday morning.

It’s the 10thth The Sarnia-Lambton nursing home has been hit by an explosion since the pandemic arrived in the country. A total of 106 of the 358 confirmed Lambton public health cases – 59 residents and 47 staff – and 16 of the 25 deaths were related to long-term care and retirement homes.

Public health officials also said there was an explosion at a local workplace, but did not mention the name of the institution as all employees and close contacts are in self-isolation and there is no further risk to the community.

In addition to the two blasts, the number of active cases rose in Lambton’s latest public health report from three to 10.

Three Lambton Kent County school board schools have been linked to confirmed cases this week, but so far all three remain open. Two Bright’s Grove public school classes were sent home Thursday – 47 students in Grades 6 and 7 – and two teachers after a positive test.

One case was also linked to the Northern Collegiate Institute and Vocational School, but school board officials said Sarnia High School would not be affected as the person has not been there for more than two weeks.

A confirmed case also surfaced Tuesday at Colonel Cameron Public School, a primary school with 200 students in Corunna. Two classes – a total of 45 students – were sent home in quarantine until October 22, but no staff.

Public health officials said students could go for a voluntary test, but this would not affect their self-isolation timelines due to different incubation periods. They said they have been in close contact in schools but remind parents to monitor their children for symptoms.

The school board says online tuition will start immediately for quarantined students.

Catholic school board st. Clair reported Friday morning that there were no cases related to her schools.

Bluewater Health still has a COVID-19 patient in the intensive care unit at Sarnia Hospital. The 61-year-old man entered the room from self-isolation on October 5 and was transferred to intensive care the next day.

The patient is not reflected in the number of Lambton public health cases as he is not out of the area.
