A coronavirus case at Peace Arch Hospital has prompted Fraser Health to declare an outbreak.

Under pandemic protocol, a single coronavirus case in a health care setting is considered an outbreak..

In a news release Thursday, Fraser Health said staff saw “evidence of transmission in a rehab unit.”

They believe the outbreak is confined to a single unit in the White Rock hospital. No new patients are allowed into the unit for now.

All patients in the ward and their families have been notified of the outbreak, and public health staff are doing contact tracing, Fraser Health said.
