There are two more laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark, the district health unit reported Thursday afternoon.“The two new cases added today are close contacts with a case outside the health unit,” according to the organization’s website.

That makes seven active community cases in the three counties. The four active cases reported by the health unit on Monday were in close contact with an active case that had been reported days earlier. All five are listed as being in the Grenville County area. One person was hospitalized on Wednesday.

The two cases added Thursday are in Lanark East and are unrelated to those reported earlier this week, according to the health unit. Based on data comparisons, it appears the two new cases are a male and female aged 20 to 44.

Daily updates are based on data available at 4 p.m. the day before.

Fifty-two deaths in the region have been attributed to COVID-19; 49 were residents of long-term care facilities and the other three were community cases. The local total of COVID-19 cases is now 363.
