COVID-19 outbreak after Ont. basketball tournament, nearly 7,000 told to get tested ‘immediately’

 

"Get tested as soon as possible."

That's the message from health officials in Durham Region to anyone who attended a basketball tournament in Oshawa, Ont. earlier in the month.

An outbreak was declared, with at least 20 positive cases being linked to the event.

It was attended by teams from all over Ontario and across the country — meaning that potentially 7,000 people need to get tested for COVID-19.
