SUDBURY -- People who attended a social gathering on 'Morgan Beach' between Chelmsford and Dowling on Wednesday could have been exposed to COVID-19 according to Sudbury health officials.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts released a statement Sunday evening warning the public of a potential high-risk exposure at the location on Morgan Road between 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m on June 16.

Those who attended should be tested for COVID-19 on or after June 23. However, officials said if symptoms occur, you should be tested as soon as possible.

Even with a negative test result, anyone who attended must remain home and self-isolate until July 1.

Officials said during this isolation period, everyone else in the household is also expected to stay home -- except for essential reasons.

Adding that if even one symptom of COVID-19 appears, everyone in the household is required to self isolate until a negative COVID-19 test is provided or an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional.

COVID-19 testing appointments can be made through the Health Sciences North Assessment Centre either online or by calling 705-671-7373.
