Here’s your CFRC daily news brief for Thursday, December 10 2020!
We now have 67 active cases of COVID-19 in the KFL&A region. This is the highest case number we have reached. Several cases are linked to the Third day worship centre, as well as some parties that took place in the University District on Dec 4 and Dec 5. If you experience symptoms, please visit the Beechgrove complex to get tested, or students can go to Mitchell Hall on Queen’s university campus to get tested. Isolate immediately, and stay safe out there folks.
Despite the rise in COVID numbers, the City of Kingston has opened the skating rink at Springer Market Square as of yesterday.
