A person who travelled to Las Vegas for an international conference has tested positive for COVID-19. This brings the total number of infections in Ontario to 24.

According to an internal email sent to staff in the University Health Network, the person went to the Emergency Department at Toronto Western Hospital Wednesday with respiratory symptoms.

“All protocols were followed and the patient was assessed and sent home to self-isolate,” said the email, from Gillian Howard, the vice-president of public affairs and communications at the University Health Network.

“The patient is now at home and being monitored by Toronto Public Health,” she continued.
