PSA UPDATE: Potential exposure date correction – affected individuals advised to monitor for symptoms

Sat, Oct 31, 2020

Algoma Public Health (APH) is updating the potential exposure advisory released on October 29, 2020.  

The date on the original release indicated October 26 as the exposure date. However, this has been updated to October 25 as the correct date. 


Anyone who travelled on the Ontario Northland bus on October 25, 2020:

  • 11:00 a.m. bus from Toronto to Sudbury, rows 1-5
  • 5:30 p.m. bus from Sudbury to Spragge, rows 1-5
  • Shuttle from Spragge to Elliot Lake, rows 1-6

This notification is for a potential exposure only.  At this time, there is no new confirmed case of COVID-19 in Algoma. 


We also want to advise that the risk of infection is very low for this potential exposure, and that this advisory is issued out of an abundance of caution. We apologize for any anxiety this may have caused.


Affected individuals are not considered high risk close contacts and do not need to self-isolate.  However, they should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days, from Oct 25th to Nov 8th.  Anyone with symptoms should isolate from others, and call APH at 705-759-5404 (toll-free 1-866-892-0172, ext. 5404) or their local public health unit.
