Interior Health says the COVID-19 outbreak at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail has ended.
The outbreak, declared May 24, saw 15 people come down with COVID on the hospital’s third floor and one person die. Non-essential visitors were restricted as a result.
However, another outbreak in the Pavilion long-term care wing of Slocan Community Health Centre in New Denver continues. It broke out two days later and the health authority says so far there have been nine cases.
