Newfoundland and Labrador is reporting four new cases of COVID-19 on Friday, three of which are still under investigation by public health to find the source. 

Two of the cases under investigation are in the Eastern Health region — a man and woman, both between 50 and 59 years old — while the third is in the Western Health region, a woman between 40 and 49 years old, said Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Janice Fitzgerald during the COVID-19 briefing. 

“It’s still very early in the investigation, so it doesn’t mean that we don’t know the source, it just means that we’re starting the investigation,” she said.

The other case reported on Friday is also in the Eastern Health region — a man between 60 and 69 years old connected to the recent cluster in Grand Bank. The man is not a tenant of Blue Crest Cottages.
