What’s the latest?

Ottawa Public Health says the male driver of a rideshare between Montréal’s Trudeau International Airport to the Barrhaven area last Wednesday may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should monitor himself for symptoms.

The rideshare left the airport around 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 24. The single passenger has since tested positive for the illness and would have been contagious at the time, the health agency wrote in a release. The rideshare arrived in Ottawa around 10:30 p.m. 

Members of Ottawa’s African community say they’d like more done to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts on the continent as a new variant of concern, Omicron, has been detected in the southern part of the continent.

They say the variant has also affected some people’s holiday travel plans to visit family members in the area.

The COVID-19 pandemic has already taken a big toll on Ontario’s music venues, with several in Ottawa having closed their doors for good.

For those who’ve survived the lockdowns and capacity restrictions, however, there’s now a new threat: many small-and-medium-sized venues are facing remarkably high increases in their insurance premiums.

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is advising people who visited the Belleville Shoeless Joe’s on Nov. 20 and 21 that they may have been exposed to COVID-19.

The health unit is investigating multiple cases of COVID-19 at the restaurant during these dates and people are advised to undergo testing, even if they do not have symptoms.
