COVID-19: Cases still on the rise despite red zone restrictions

As the Chateauguay Valley enters its first full week with red-zone restrictions, new case diagnoses keep going up. The Quebec government confirmed 174 new cases in the Montérégie on Oct. 18, 2020 alone. The region as a whole has also seen 52 hospitalizations, and 13 deaths in the last seven days. The MRC Haut-Saint-Laurent currently has 20 active cases, with 5 having been diagnosed in the last week. Meanwhile the MRC Jardins-de-Napierville had 17 new cases diagnosed between Oct. 12 and Oct. 18. In that same period, the MRC de Beauharnois-Salaberry confirmed 36 new cases, and the MRC Vaudreuil-Soulanges confirmed 50.

In good news, the Centre d’Hébergement du Comté de Huntingdon (Huntingdon County Hospital) has been reporting stable numbers for the last week, with no new hospitalizations or deaths. The Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de la Montérégie-Ouest has also just launched its annual flu vaccination campaign.

For those seeking to be tested for COVID-19, there will be a walk-in testing centre at Centre communautaire de Beauharnois at 600 rue Ellice in Beauharnois on Tuesday, Oct. 20, as well as at Club le Rendez-Vous at 319 rue Brault in Châteauguay on Wednesday, Oct. 21, with both centres open from 9:30 am to 4 pm.
