"As a result, the expectation is that masks will be worn within public areas of health-care facilities, shopping malls, grocery stores, community centres and other public spaces - as you enter, exit and move around".

The county reports a total of 426 deaths in the county because of the coronavirus, while the state's total rose one to 411. The remaining people with COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation.

Since August, the county has had only one day with a higher number of new cases, with 204 on October 4.

The previous record for the health authority was 20 cases in a day, which happened twice in July. The number of people hospitalized has gone from six to seven this week, and there have been 25 deaths of residents who had been infected with COVID-19, including nine inmates of the Belmont Correctional Institution, located just west of St. Clairsville. The outbreak at Kelowna's francophone school, École de L'Anse-au-sable, now has 15 cases related to its outbreak while approximately 175 people have been directed to self-isolate for 14 days.
