The regional health authority in Laval, Que. says there's no epidemiological link between six cases of COVID-19 among employees at a local hospital.
Marie-Eve Despatie-Gagnon, a spokeswoman for the health authority confirmed today that three emergency room doctors and three other employees at the Cite-de-la-Sante Hospital have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
She says the cases are all due to community transmission and there is no outbreak at the hospital.
But Jean-Francois Houle, the vice-president of the union that represents a variety of workers at the health authority, including orderlies, questions that claim.
