The family is in quarantine at Grouard.
A further call to South Peace News – but not confirmed – tells us that the positive test has resulted in the shutdown of Kapown Treatment Centre in Grouard, plus the Grouard First Nations band hall. Calls to the health centre at Grouard have not yet been returned.
