Potential exposures close postal station, Clarenville court

Canada Post’s Kenmount Road facility in St. John’s will remain closed until at least Wednesday night to ensure public health authorities have enough time to complete the contact tracing process.

This comes after one worker at the facility tested positive for COVID-19. The worker had attended a funeral home in St. John’s where it’s believed another person in attendance carried the highly contagious coronavirus.

Thirteen Canada Post employees were in isolation on Monday because they attended the same funeral.

Officials say one person in the Eastern Health region has been responsible for infecting eight others so far.

The Clarenville Provincial Court isn’t taking any chances. A decision was made Monday night to close the courthouse indefinitely after staff were potentially exposed to COVID-19.

There was no information available on how they might have come into contact with the virus.

At least four trials and one bail hearing had been scheduled at the court for this week.
