We’re learning more about one of the COVID-19 cases reported in the Hearst area last week, only because the health unit is warning of potential exposure to other people.

In a news release Monday night, the Porcupine Health Unit says members of Rick’s Muscle World Centre gym in Hearst might have been exposed to the virus.  If you were at that gym last Tuesday or Wednesday between three and five in the afternoon, you’re being told to self-monitor for two weeks.  That takes you to next Tuesday, November 4th and Wednesday the 5th.

The health unit indicates there are no new cases beyond the weekend ones that brought the total to 95.
