Two new confirmed positive cases of the novel coronavirus have been reported in Middlesex-London.

They are among eight new confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in the area, bringing Ontario’s total to 180.

Ontario’s new cases were reported to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care by the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU), according to the province.

One of the new cases involves an employee at the London courthouse. In a memo sent to staff and stakeholders, director of operations Samantha Poisson said the courthouse learned of the employee’s diagnosis shortly after 9 p.m. Monday.

“Before being tested, the individual was at work between March 9 and March 10 and has not since returned to the building,” said Poisson.

The courthouse was closed temporarily and is expected to reopen on Wednesday, Poisson said.

She added that the court is in ongoing discussions with local health officials to ensure it is following the best practices amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.
