There is a total of 6 positive cases for COVID-19 (Tuesday, October 6) now listed in the MRC Pontiac.
The cases, according to the Warden of the MRC Pontiac, Jane Toller, and according to data from the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux de l’Outaouais (CISSSO) are located in the municipalities of Fort-Coulonge and Mansfield-et-Pontefract.
In the Pontiac Local Health Network (RLS) (this time including the municipality of Pontiac, including the Quyon sector), the number of cases displayed is 13. The Warden of the MRC Pontiac wished to warn the citizens of the Pontiac that in order to avoid what happened in the Carleton-sur-Mer region in Gaspésie, which was not really affected last spring, this region has seen the virus spread significantly in recent weeks.
On the eve of Thanksgiving weekend, the CISSS de l’Outaouais reiterated to avoid hosting gatherings and meals that would bring people together from several residences.
