Peterborough Public Health is advising anyone who visited Kawartha Country Wines in Buckhorn on Saturday, October 3, 2020 between 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days.
PPH was notified today that a positive case from outside the Peterborough area visited the site during these hours and is issuing this public notice to ensure other patrons are aware. Kawartha Country Wines is located at 2452 County Road 36, Buckhorn, Ontario.
“We are asking anyone who visited this location at this time to self-monitor their symptoms for the next 14 days, until October 17, and if they develop symptoms, please self-isolate and seek out testing,” advised Dr. Rosana Salvaterra, Medical Officer of Health. “While the risk is low, this serves as a strong reminder to avoid non-essential travel between regions and to follow all recommended public health measures to prevent the spread of the virus. All residents tested for COVID-19 due to symptoms must remain in self-isolation until their results are available.”
Dr. Salvaterra also encouraged residents to download the COVID Alert app as it is designed to alert others to potential exposures in these situations.
