We all knew it was a matter of when. Minutes ago information came to CFN that a woman had posted on social media that she was in Quarantine at the Cornwall Community Hospital for a possible case of the COVID 19 Coronavirus.
We were able to reach her in her hospital room where she stated that she had come in for an entirely other issue; had coughed and then asked if she’d been travelling which she stated she had.
At that point she was quarantined according to the video she sent us.
She was not directly complaining about any Coronavirus symptoms and it sounds like alert staff at the Hospital were on the ball and being careful.
And in 2020 it’s always better to be careful than to be wrong.
We will update as more info becomes available and we hope that she tests clear and her other issues get resolved by the staff at CCH.

If you have a story to tell us about illness in the community or quarantine email firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE 6:24 PM
The patient messaged us from CCH stating that she is out of quarantine now and no longer being asked to wear a mask. She’s now being treated for the condition she attended the hospital for.
