Newfoundland and Labrador reported three new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday.


The three new cases are in the Western Health region.


The three new confirmed cases are close contacts of a previous case. They are members of the same extended household. Because they were identified previously as close contacts, they were already in quarantine throughout their infectious periods. This means there is no risk of transmission to the community.


Everyone considered close contact has been advised to quarantine.


This brings the total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the province to 282. The province now has nine active cases. 269 people have recovered from the virus. To date, 46,359 people have been tested.
