The outbreak was declared on Wednesday in an inpatient unit in the hospital’s east wing. At a media conference on Thursday, EOHU Medical Officer of Health Dr. Paul Roumeliotis said he understood there were three cases at the hospital. Ontario defines an outbreak as “two or more laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases (patients and/or staff) within a specified area (unit/floor/service) within a 14-day period where both cases could have reasonably acquired their infection in the hospital”.
