Peel Region Public Health (PRPH) is warning people who attended a funeral in Mississauga last weekend that they have been exposed to COVID-19.
Officials are urging anyone who attended a funeral at New Life Covenant Centre, located at 7050 Bramalea Road, on November 13 to seek immediate PCR testing.
“All guests should get tested immediately and self-isolate while awaiting results, regardless of vaccination status,” the health unit said.
Attendees who previously underwent a rapid antigen test are asked to get re-tested with a PCR test. Those who refuse to get tested must self-isolate for 20 days, PRPH said.
