Popular Nova Scotia Resort Closes Temporarily As COVID-19 Cases Rise https://davidthompsonthings.com/popular-nova-scotia-resort-closes-temporarily-as-covid-19-cases-rise/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 18:11:33 +0000 https://davidthompsonthings.com/popular-nova-scotia-resort-closes-temporarily-as-covid-19-cases-rise/ A popular resort on the south shore of Nova Scotia has announced it will be closed until the end of the month as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise.

A popular resort on the south shore of Nova Scotia has announced it will be closed until the end of the month as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise.

Nova Scotia has reported a high number of COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, due to the highly transmissible variant of Omicron.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, White Point Resort said some of its employees tested positive for the virus “after nearly two years of relentless effort and sacrifice.”

“We are now at the point where we believe it is necessary to do our part to help slow the spread of Covid-19, and close the property again,” the post read.

The property had closed in March 2020 just as the pandemic was starting. It reopened in June of the same year, but only to residents of the four Atlantic provinces – or the so-called Atlantic bubble.

The policy drew criticism the following summer, when fully vaccinated Canadians were allowed to come to Nova Scotia without any self-isolation requirements. The station quickly reversed its decision and resumed welcoming Canadians from outside the Atlantic region.

The publication said the resort will close Monday and remain closed until at least Jan.31, as it awaits more information from Premier Tim Houston and Dr Robert Strang, the province’s chief medical officer of health.

“We would like to thank you all for your continued support, and while this is not how we want to start 2022, we believe it is the safest thing for all of us to do,” the post said.

Dylan Meisner, managing director of White Point, declined a request for an interview.

837 new cases

Nova Scotia reported 837 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday.

There are 541 new cases in the central health zone, 133 in the east zone, 90 in the north zone and 73 in the west zone.

The province has issued abridged updates over the weekends that do not include current hospitalization figures.

Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, Dr Robert Strang, said earlier this week the province will focus more on hospitalizations than the number of cases during this wave of the Omicron-induced pandemic.

As of Friday, there were 48 people hospitalized with the virus, including seven in intensive care.

The number of hospitalizations is much lower than that of the COVID-19 wave of last spring. More than 100 people were hospitalized in Nova Scotia with the virus last May.

Nova Scotia Health Laboratories performed 4,144 tests on Saturday.

Atlantic Canada Case Numbers

  • New Brunswick reported 201 new cases and one death on Sunday. There are 79 people hospitalized with COVID-19. There are 16 patients in intensive care.
  • Newfoundland and Labrador reported 367 new cases on Sunday for a total of 4,944 active cases. There are six people in the hospital.
  • Prince Edward Island reported 110 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday. Two people are hospitalized and treated for COVID-19, one in intensive care.

Vicente Fox-Stephen Harper panel topics include how border companies can profit from mounting tensions between the United States and China amid supply issues and semiconductor chip shortages

EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – Two former North American leaders will be in El Paso next month to discuss how the region can benefit from rising US-China tensions.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox and former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper are featured guests at the 2022 US-Mexico Border Summit sponsored by the Borderplex Alliance.

The summit will take place on February 24 at the Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park, 106 W. Mills Ave., with a lunch at the Paso del Norte Hotel Autograph Collection. Panelists will discuss why attracting direct investment from across the Pacific could be a game-changer for border companies, and consider understanding how Fortune 500 companies have chosen the cities in which they want to expand their business.

The summit comes as supply issues and a shortage of semiconductor chips lurk businesses from gigantic Detroit automakers to Main Street retail stores. The Borderplex Alliance and other business organizations on both sides of the border are promoting the region’s ability to become a home for new chipmakers and a place for offshore manufacturers to relocate to avoid political and logistical upheaval.

Harper was Prime Minister of Canada from 2006 to 2015 and was the driving force behind expanding trade relations with Europe and India, free trade agreements with Colombia and South Korea, and a been a staunch ally of the International Monetary Fund, which promotes stability and economic growth in developing countries.

Fox in 2000 became the first candidate of an opposition party to be elected President of Mexico since 1929. The former Coca-Cola executive promoted the stability of the Mexican institution and fostered commerce. His legacy north of the border was to improve relations with expatriates, creating the Institute for Mexicans Abroad. The IME has become a sounding board for Mexican communities to influence Mexican policy towards the United States.

The Borderplex Alliance says it will announce additional panels and panelists as February 24 approaches. Tickets for the event can be purchased through Eventbrite.

Schools in Nova Scotia will switch to online learning on January 10, and classroom learning is expected to return on January 17 to prepare classrooms to better deal with COVID-.19

At a press conference on Wednesday, Prime Minister Tim Houston said it was an “extremely difficult decision”. Classroom learning was previously scheduled to begin on January 10.

Houston said the province was working to address concerns about communication, masks, COVID-19 testing and ventilation in schools.

Seventy-one schools that need better ventilation will receive units and these will be in place by the end of next week, Houston said. He also said the province is working to make three-ply masks available to all students.

The province is expecting more rapid test kits soon, and Houston said it hopes to have a better estimate of an arrival date sometime next week.

He said the province is also working on how to communicate around cases of COVID-19 in schools and on safety precautions.

New self-isolation requirements

The province also announced new rules regarding self-isolation for people who test positive for COVID-19 or who are in close contact. New rules start at 6 a.m. on Friday

Fully immunized people or children 11 years of age and under should:

  • Isolate for at least seven days after symptom onset, or a positive test if asymptomatic.
  • They can leave isolation after day 7 if there are no symptoms or if symptoms improve and there has been no fever for at least 24 hours.

An unvaccinated or partially vaccinated person or an immunocompromised person should self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days. They can leave isolation after day 10 if they are no longer showing symptoms or if their symptoms improve and there has been no fever for at least 24 hours.

The province noted that isolation requirements apply regardless of the type of test performed – rapid test or laboratory PCR test.

If a fully immunized person or child 11 years of age or younger is identified as close contact of a positive case, the province has said:

  • Get tested 72 hours after exposure and watch for symptoms.
  • If they pass a PCR test, no further testing is necessary unless symptoms develop.
  • If they pass a quick test, they should do a second 48 hours after the first.

Until they get a negative test result, close contacts should:

  • Stay home except when going to school, work, or daycare, and work from home as much as possible.
  • Practice physical distancing at work or school, including eating or drinking.
  • Continue to wear a tight-fitting three-layer mask and only do essential activities like shopping for groceries or collecting prescriptions if no one else can.

For all other people in close contact, including immunocompromised people who have not received a booster:

  • The self-isolation requirement is seven days.
  • They can be released from isolation after two negative rapid tests performed on the sixth and eighth day or after a negative PCR test performed on the sixth or seventh day.
  • If symptoms develop, they should stay in isolation and get tested.

In households, the province has said that if a person with COVID-19 can isolate themselves completely separately from the rest of their household, then other household members follow direction for close contact.

However, if the person cannot self-isolate completely separately, other members of the household should self-isolate with them for the duration of their isolation – regardless of their immunization status – and should be tested on the third or fourth day and again on the last day of isolation. They can be released from isolation if the last test is negative.

The province noted that the changes do not apply to people working in high-risk health care settings, such as hospitals, home care and long-term care facilities. Whether they are positive or they are a close contact, the province says they should educate their employer and follow their workplace health guidelines.

45 people hospitalized with COVID-19

Houston said 45 people were hospitalized with COVID-19, including eight people in intensive care. He said the average length of hospital stay is 5.4 days.

Hospitalizations are currently well below those reported during the spring wave of COVID-19. More than 100 people were hospitalized with the virus at one point in May.

Nova Scotia reported 842 new cases on Wednesday, including 498 cases in the central zone, 141 cases in the east zone, 121 cases in the west zone and 82 cases in the north zone.

Among those hospitalized:

  • Five (11.1%) received a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • 24 (53.3 percent) had two doses.
  • Two (4.4 percent) are partially vaccinated.
  • 14 (31.1%) are not vaccinated.

Only 10 percent of Nova Scotians are unvaccinated, the province said in a statement.

“The very high level of our vaccine coverage is what keeps us as safe as we are now. I don’t even want to think about what Omicron might look like if we hadn’t been vaccinated,” the chief said. Nova Scotia Medical Center. Health Officer Dr Robert Strang.

Strang said the Omicron variant affects access to certain healthcare. He said people in an emergency will receive treatment, but “if your medical condition is not urgent, please do not go to the emergency room.”

The current COVID-19 restrictions will remain in place until at least January 31, Strang said.

As of Wednesday, 42% of the eligible population had received a booster or reserved one, Houston said.

Houston noted that 12,600 boosters “went into action” on Tuesday, setting a new record for the province. He said more dates are opening and one date will be available for everyone.

Houston said more tests will be available in Cape Breton soon.

He said a testing center opened in New Waterford on Wednesday and others will open in Glace Bay and Sydney. He also said mobile tests would be available by Friday.

According to the provincial COVID-19 dashboard, about 84% of people hospitalized with the virus from March 15 to December 17 were not vaccinated.

Visitor restriction recommendations

The Nova Scotia Department of Seniors and Long-Term Care recommends that long-term care facilities be closed to visitors beginning Friday at 6 a.m.

Two designated caregivers per resident should still be allowed to visit so they can provide physical and mental support, the department recommended. He also said the industry is currently experiencing a staff shortage because people are isolated from COVID-19.

It is strongly advised that it be temporarily closed to most visitors to minimize the risk of spread to facilities and the impact of exhibits on residents and staff, the department noted.

The ministry will reassess the situation on January 17.

Several hospitals have reported outbreaks, including the Halifax Infirmary, Dartmouth General, Victoria General site of QEII Health Sciences Center, St. Martha’s Regional and New Waterford Consolidated.

As of Wednesday morning, Nova Scotia Health limited all hospitals in the province to one dedicated visitor per inpatient, with a few exceptions, including children under 19 or critically ill patients.

On Wednesday evening, the health authority said in a statement that patients hospitalized at the following sites in the eastern zone cannot receive visitors at all due to COVID-19 activity and staffing needs:

  • Sainte-Marthe regional hospital.
  • Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital.
  • New Consolidated Hospital in Waterford.
  • Northside General Hospital.

Atlantic Canada Case Numbers

  • Newfoundland and Labrador reported 479 new cases on Wednesday for a total of 3,665 active cases. There are three people in the hospital.
  • Prince Edward Island reported 222 new cases on Wednesday. There are 1,378 active cases. Three people are hospitalized and treated for COVID-19, one in intensive care. There are four people hospitalized for other reasons who have tested positive for the virus.
  • New Brunswick reported three deaths and 779 new cases on Wednesday. There are 59 people hospitalized, including 16 in intensive care.

Canada has neglected to follow China’s climate policy, jeopardizing the future of the country’s fossil fuel exports.

One of the surprises of COP26 was the joint US-China declaration on strengthening climate action in the 2020s. Although the declaration lacks details, it offers a positive sign of progress towards reducing global emissions. greenhouse gases, in part because China and the United States are the two largest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world.

The statement also marks “a rare moment of cooperation between two superpowers locked in a geopolitical rivalry” on trade tariffs and intellectual properties, among others, according to Bloomberg News.

For academics who have followed China’s climate policy closely, this news reaffirms China’s resolve to rapidly decarbonize its economy. This resolution, however, has been largely overlooked by Canadian policymakers and investors in the oil and gas sector, in part because the Canadian mainstream media has underestimated the evolution of China’s climate governance.

Unfortunately, such neglect carries significant economic risks for Canada: China’s increased decarbonization efforts will cast shadows on the future of Canadian fossil fuel exports.

The evolution of China’s climate governance

The joint declaration reaffirms the two countries’ commitment to intensify their policies to reduce carbon emissions in order to achieve the Paris Agreement target of limiting the rise in global temperature to “well below 2 ° C” ”And keep the 1.5 ° C target“ close at hand ”.

To this end, the main areas of climate cooperation described in the declaration focus on accelerating the energy transition of the two countries during this decade. In terms of decarbonizing power generation, for example, the United States aims to achieve 100% carbon-free electricity by 2035. For its part, China promises to gradually reduce the consumption of coal and make everything possible to speed up the process. The two countries also identified reducing methane emissions as a critical area for future collaborative efforts.

China’s commitments in the joint statement are consistent with its evolving climate policy, which has undergone significant changes in recent years. As recent Environmental policy The article points out that climate governance in China is characterized by the dynamic between climate change and the Chinese government’s quest for “performance legitimacy,” whereby the Chinese government maintains its legitimacy by achieving concrete goals such as growth. economic and social stability.

The Chinese public is increasingly aware of the dire consequences that extreme weather events can have, such as the July 2021 floods that killed more than 300 people in central Henan Province. The importance of government policies that avoid and reduce greenhouse gas emissions has increased dramatically in the public eye.

In response, the Chinese government’s quest for legitimacy – once based solely on its economic development – now takes environmental issues more into account. It also explains why China placed more emphasis on transitioning renewable energy and other sustainability measures in its 14th Five-Year Plan, as well as the country’s ambitious goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2060.

China’s accelerated eco-transformation

The Chinese government has communicated its sustainability efforts at the national level through “ecological civilization” – a policy framework aimed at establishing a green economy that matches China’s development trajectory. But a general lack of international awareness about the centrality of this concept in guiding China’s environmental discourse persists.

My recent analysis of international media coverage of ecological civilization suggests that many reports have equated the concept with deceptive propaganda. Not only does this reject China’s recent environmental achievements in areas such as renewable energy development, afforestation (planting new trees or seeds in previously unforested areas) and ecological agriculture, it can also lead to significant miscalculations on the part of foreign oil and gas producers about the future directions of China’s environmental and energy policies.

Of course, China still faces many obstacles to decarbonize its economy. For example, its low-carbon development program has led to recent power shortages, which has left many worried that the government will have to slow down its efforts to shut down coal-fired power plants in order to stabilize its electricity supply. electricity.

China’s national carbon emissions trading program also poses many challenges. As highlighted in a comprehensive review of the program, factors such as market volatility and inaccurate facility-level emissions data demonstrate the complexity inherent in establishing the world’s largest carbon market in a short period of time.

Growing risks of investing in fossil fuels

Canada is currently developing two energy megaprojects with China as a key customer: the Trans Mountain (TMX) pipeline expansion project to transport crude and refined oil from Alberta to British Columbia, and the LNG Canada facility. (and its related Coastal GasLink pipeline) to export natural gas to Asian markets.

Both projects initially promised long-term economic prosperity in return for public support. But their economic benefits must now be reassessed in light of how the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the transition of many countries to low-cost renewables, including China.

In October 2020, the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives released an updated assessment of the need for TMX, based on the latest data. The reassessment found that the increase in bitumen production required by TMX defeats Canada’s emission reduction target, and that Canadian heavy oil exported to Asia “will likely sell at a loss.” from $ 4 to $ 6 per barrel ”.

As for British Columbia’s LNG exports, a July 2020 report from the Conference Board of Canada says that a thriving Canadian LNG industry will generate more than $ 500 billion in investment between 2020 and 2064. However, A closer look at the report’s methodology reveals two flawed assumptions underlying its predictions.

For starters, the report’s data on the demand for natural gas in Asia-Pacific markets ends in 2018, ahead of the macroeconomic shock caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The International Energy Agency estimates that “the COVID-19 crisis will cause an annual loss of demand of 75 billion cubic meters by 2025”. This poses a significant challenge to future Canadian LNG export plans.

Second, the economic projections in the report are based on developing an LNG export capacity of 56 million tonnes of gas per year. For reference, phase 1 of LNG Canada, with a commissioning date scheduled for 2023, will only be able to export 14 million tonnes per year.

In other words, for British Columbia to realize the proposed economic benefits, it must not only secure enough investment to quadruple its LNG production over the next several decades, but it must also find ways to sell its LNG. competitively priced in rapidly decarbonizing economies such as China. Such economic calculations are unlikely to work.

At COP26, Justin Trudeau announced that Canada would cap emissions from the oil and gas sector. Yet there is a more fundamental question that deserves broader public discussion: Do we want to devote more of Canada’s already limited carbon budget to the fossil fuel sector, which is in decline and poses increasing economic risks?

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, TX (ValleyCentral) – Clayton’s Bar and Grill hosted the 24th Annual Polar Bear Dip.

Clayton Brashear, owner of Clayton’s Bar and Grill, told ValleyCentral that the Polar Bear Dip is for everyone to clean up from the year before. “Whatever happened to you wrong in the last year, get rid of it, put it behind you, look at life with a new set of lenses. “

Hundreds of participants attended, including some from Canada and Minnesota.

Winter Texan Larry Rau has owned property on SPI for almost two decades and has said this is his 17th year of participating in diving.

Rau not only came out this year to have fun and meet new people, but also to forget about last year.

“It was difficult for a lot of people,” Rau added. “You couldn’t see any family, you couldn’t communicate with friends and I hope this year we will put that behind us.”

For the Texan winter, David Dutcher, the Polar Bear Dip gives him the opportunity to reunite with his grandsons and spend a vacation in warm weather.

Dutcher lives in Minnesota where he said the temperature is currently negative.

Clayton’s Bar & Grill plans to continue the tradition each year to help everyone ring in the New Year with a fresh start.

Registration is free and Clayton’s will then offer live music, food and drink.

Now that the new year has arrived, Brashear is gearing up for spring break in March and plans to have a normal spring break after having a small one in 2021.

Artists Polo G, Steve Aoki and Don Toliver will perform from March 12 to 19.

Looking for activities to do late on vacation?

Content of the article

There are options, but going to the Cornwall Municipal Complex or Benson Center to watch a Colts or Prowlers game is not one of them.

The Colts Jr. A were originally scheduled to play their first game after Christmas this Thursday night in Cornwall, but it was among the 16 Central Canada Hockey League games that the league decided a few weeks ago to postpone until the end. March, due to the pandemic. Even if the league had continued, the Colts would not be able to play a home game this week in the city – the Municipality announced last week that it was canceling all reservations at the Aquatic Center, Benson Center and Civic Complex until to January 4 and possibly longer.

The move forced the Cornwall Prowlers of the Eastern Ontario Super League to announce the postponement of their Sunday game against the Deseronto Bulldogs, which was to be played at the Benson Center.

“We hope to have an (announced) makeup date soon,” EOSHL president and Prowlers owner Mitch Gagné told fans in a recent social media post.

The CCHL, like the City of Cornwall, has moved to be cautiously shutting down as the number of active COVID-19 cases has risen dramatically over the past two weeks, but League Commissioner Kevin Abrams in an announcement from the league has made their expectations clear. Play will resume shortly.

“The (game postponements) allow the league to take the break recommended by the province and the provincial and local public health,” said Abrams.

“It is important to note that this action was voluntary and proactive on the part of the member teams and the CCHL supporting the leadership of local and provincial authorities. It was not the result of a policy or mandate preventing gambling. ”

Abrams added that “the current provincial regulations continue to support play in the CCHL and we look forward to resuming our full roster of games in 2022 and remain vigilant in our commitment to our players, families, supporters and staff at the CCHL. ‘team. “

The Colts’ next scheduled game is Sunday night in Pembroke, and it will almost certainly go as planned. But, it’s a bit riskier for the next scheduled home game, which will be against Rockland on Thursday, January 6th.

The league resumes play in the first puck of 2022 at Carleton Place on Sunday at 3 p.m., during the visit of the Renfrew Wolves.

Revised dates for games rescheduled in December include Carleton Place at Cornwall moved to March 24, the Colts at Rockland changed to March 25 and Cornwall at Smiths Falls slated for March 27.

The rescheduling is further delaying – but only by a week – the start of the first CCHL playoffs to be held since 2019.

All of Newfoundland and Labrador goes to Alert Level 3 as of midnight, as the number of COVID-19 cases in the province continues to skyrocket.

At a press conference on Wednesday morning, Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr Janice Fitzgerald reported that 60 new cases of the virus had been discovered since Tuesday’s update – all under investigation.

It is tied for the second most new cases the province has seen in a single day and brings the province’s active case count from 30 to 223 in just one week.

This is the highest number of active cases in Newfoundland and Labrador since mid-February.

Fitzgerald said 37 of the new cases are in Eastern Health Region, 10 in Central Health Region, 12 in Western Region and one in Labrador-Grenfell Health Region.

There are now active outbreaks in the western, central and eastern parts of the island, Fitzgerald said, noting that health officials predict the numbers will continue to rise given the infectivity of the Omicron variant.

“Our fear is that if we start to see serious illnesses it will overwhelm our health system which is already overburdened,” she said.

“We are withdrawing healthcare staff from other areas to work on the COVID response, and we cannot risk an increase in hospitalizations. “

Watch the full update from December 22:

There have been 12 new healings and no one is hospitalized due to COVID-19.

Testing in all regions is intensifying and 3,458 swabs have been taken in the past 24 hours.

Fitzgerald said the government’s continued response to a nearly two-year pandemic has not been for nothing.

“The last thing we want is for people to think that the work we have done over the past two years is wasted. We have enjoyed a largely favorable epidemiology and very few restrictions on d ‘other jurisdictions,’ Fitzgerald said.

“But more importantly, we’ve saved lives. Today we have to face things as they are, not as we want them to be. We will reassess where we are on January 10 to determine if we can change the alert level. “

Closure of bars and concert halls

The move to Alert Level 3 means that public health restrictions are tightening.

The restrictions close bars, cinemas, bingo halls and performance venues across the province a day before Tibb’s Eve, which tends to draw large crowds to drinking places in Newfoundland and Labrador. -Labrador.

They are also reducing restaurant capacity and strengthening the “regular 20” rule, which limits family contact to a maximum of 20 people outside the household.

“None of us want to break this news. We believe now is the right time to introduce these measures to hopefully protect the economy in the long term. There may be some difficulties in the short term,” said Premier Andrew Furey.

“Now is not the perfect time, but COVID doesn’t know it’s Tibb’s Eve or Christmas Day.”

Below Alert Level 3, visitor restrictions are in place at nursing homes, but shopping malls and businesses can remain open at full capacity.

Watch | Dr. Janice Fitzgerald urges residents not to be discouraged

Residents’ sacrifices are not in vain, Newfoundland health official says

Newfoundland and Labrador Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Janice Fitzgerald has urged residents not to be put off by the new health restrictions. She said two years of hard work saved many lives during the pandemic. 1:00

Funerals, burials and religious ceremonies are limited to 100 people, or 50% of the venue’s capacity, whichever is less. Alarm clocks are prohibited.

Fitness centers, swimming pools and yoga studios are limited to 100 people at a time, or 50% of the capacity per room.

Sports organizations are limited to training and not competing, and it is recommended that you work from home whenever possible.

When it comes to travel around the province to celebrate the holidays, Fitzgerald reminded the public to keep contacts low and consider whether or not travel is essential.

“You should not go to another region of the province to party with people who are not in your loved one, consistent 20 [household contacts],” she said.

“The more movements of people we have in the province, the more the virus will eventually spread. “

MUN, CNA starting winter semester online

Following the briefing, Memorial University and the College of the North Atlantic announced they would delay the start of the winter semester – and move classes online.

The semester will now begin on January 10, four days later than planned, and most of the teaching will be done online until January 31.

The CNA semester will also begin on January 10, with e-learning in place until January 21. Students will receive their start dates as soon as they are confirmed, the college said.

In a statement published in the MUN’s Gazette, the university’s academic vice-president, Florentine Strzelczyk, said they had made the decision to allow employees and students returning from vacation trips to have time to isolate themselves.

Strzelczyk said they plan to return the students to campus on Jan.31, but that will depend on risk assessments and public health advice.

Omicron Spread

Dr. Monika Dutt, medical officer of health for central and western Newfoundland, told CBC radio Newfoundland morning On Wednesday, cases of Omicron begin to be found on the island’s west coast.

“We’re still at the very beginning of our investigation there,” Dutt said.

Western Health will be adding additional vaccine booster clinics until the end of December. About 2,000 more appointment slots have been added for next week, with 2,000 appointments already booked for the last two weeks of the year.

Newfoundland and Labrador reported 27 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday as people scramble to get their next protection from the virus.

Thirteen of the new cases are located in the Western Newfoundland health region, including six people under the age of 20, according to a statement from the Department of Health Monday afternoon. Nine cases are contacts of previous cases, while four are under investigation.

There are 10 cases in the Central health region, all contacts of previous cases.

Four cases are reported in the eastern health region. Two are contacts of previous cases and two cases are under investigation.

With no new recoveries to report, the number of active COVID-19 cases in Newfoundland and Labrador stands at 154. There are 67 cases in Western Health Region, 47 in Western Health Region. Central Health Region, 39 in Eastern Health Region and one in Labrador-Grenfell Health Region. Health region.

No one is hospitalized with COVID-19 and a total of 362,655 tests were performed, 1,478 more than Sunday.

Long lines to boost

On Monday, a walk-in clinic at a pharmacy inside Shoppers Drug Mart on Lemarchant Road in St. John’s saw dozens of people hoping to receive their COVID-19 vaccine booster. The province moved the wait times for a booster to 22 weeks after receiving a second dose of the vaccination on Friday. This is a reduction of about four weeks from the previous six months of waiting.

In central Newfoundland, the pandemic is once again raising its ugly head, and Gander Mayor Percy Farwell is reminding residents to follow public health rules.

“The timing couldn’t be worse, obviously. No one is looking forward to imposing restrictions on this time of year,” Farwell told CBC News on Sunday, shortly after another unexpected COVID-19 briefing provincial government and health officials.

Authorities reported 61 new cases on Sunday, including nine confirmed to be the Omicron variant and 34 others suspected to be the fast-spreading variant. More than half of these new cases are in central Newfoundland.

Badger, Twillingate, Gander and Grand Falls Windsor are now on Alert Level 3, while the rest of the province is on Alert Level 2.

As a result, health officials have reduced the capacity of most public spaces in communities in central Newfoundland to 50%, while bars, bingo halls and theaters are closed. Grand Falls-Windsor closed municipal buildings and depots to the public. The YMCA, Corduroy Brook Building, Heritage Society, Ski Lodge and Arenas remain open with restrictions.

“It’s going to be tough. It’s going to be tough for some of the businesses that are counting on a little boom this Christmas,” Farwell said. “At the end of the day, public health must come first. “

It is also not recommended to travel inside or outside the region.

Farwell said as the weekend approached – ahead of Sunday’s unscheduled briefing – people there were already feeling a little worried as cases of COVID-19 continued to rise in the province.

Farwell said the number of cases is not something to be “terrified” of, but is the reality of the coronavirus spreading exponentially, and something that needs to be addressed.

“Public health officials are asking us to take quick action again. It worked before when we had clusters in other areas,” he said.

“I think the thing is, right now, the timing is so bad.”

Meanwhile, the health ministry is pushing people to get tested even if they only have one symptom.

Public health is running a number of COVID-19 testing clinics for area residents.

Clinics include:

  • Fraser Road United Church, Gander, Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Salvation Army Church, 27 Park Street, Grand Falls-Windsor, Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Twillingate United Church, Monday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Monday also marked the last day of classes for students in the province, the vacation break having been brought forward as a precaution. Schools opened on Monday to allow children to say goodbye to classmates and teachers and to gather their belongings in case they need to switch to e-learning in the new year.

“There is a level of uncertainty, but one thing we are certain of, whatever mode we have to operate in on January 4th, we will be ready,” the English school district president of Newfoundland said on Monday. -and Labrador, Tony Stack.

“We may have to make geographic decisions. There may be virtual schools, others not, it all depends on the circumstances.”

“The most unhappy”

Jeff Pope, owner of Third Place Cafe in Grand Falls-Windsor, told CBC News it’s been a busy time for his business, which relies on the holiday season to get through the winter.

With fears of the rapidly spreading Omicron variant and changing public health restrictions, Pope said he is already seeing a sharp drop in income since the change in alert level took effect.

“A lot of people don’t go out. They want to stay home, they’re very nervous,” Pope said.

“We have seen a lot of cancellations.”

Outside of central Newfoundland, restaurants and bars in other areas also face capacity restrictions taking effect in the middle of the peak holiday season.

Bars are reduced to 50% of their capacity, while restaurants will have to operate at 75%.

Lorne Loder, co-owner of Boca Tapas Bar and Cojones Tacos and Tequila in downtown St. John’s, said the news was not unexpected, but disappointing given the time of year.

“It was very unfortunate. It’s not what everyone wanted to hear,” Loder told CBC News on Saturday.

“The month of December and the Christmas season are very important to restaurants and many industries. So yes, that was disappointing to say the least.”

Todd Perrin, owner and chef of Mallard Cottage in St. John’s, agrees the timing of the news is not ideal. Under tougher public health restrictions, he said, the hospitality industry is still the hardest hit.

“The income we generate by the first week of January is the money we need to get through this winter,” Perrin said.

“We rely on the presence of people in our spaces. We can’t just switch to the Internet or work from home. This is not an option for our company. So it’s a sad fact of our business style that as and when it happens. tends to impact us in ways that don’t impact a lot of other things. “

Perrin and Loder say physical distance has been their main goal since the province returned to Alert Level 2 in June.

Loder said all of his staff were fully vaccinated, with some even receiving a booster shot. He said other precautions had been taken as well, so he’s hoping people don’t en masse cancel in the coming weeks.

Perrin agrees and said he hopes no further restrictions are put in place so that the holiday industry is not affected too much.

“We hope we get through the next few weeks with an operation as close to normal as possible and hopefully can last through the winter,” he said.

“If something happens to limit business in the next few weeks, then that’s really going to be a problem for a lot of people.… It will be hard to see our way into the spring.”

Eastern Health issued several exposure advisories in St. John’s throughout Monday. Places and dates include:

  • Fionn MacCool’s, 199 Kenmount Road, St. John’s December 17 between 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to get tested. This does not include those who bought take out.
