President of Sask. Medical Association tests positive for COVID-19

REGINA — The President of the Saskatchewan Medical Association says he received a positive test for COVID-19 on Wednesday evening.

“I attended a curling bonspiel held March 11-14 in Edmonton,” Dr. Allan Woo wrote in an SMA release. “This bonspiel is an annual event that usually attracts 50-60 physicians from Western Canada. I believe I contracted the COVID-19 virus at this bonspiel.”

Dr. Woo has been in self-isolation since he started experiencing symptoms on Tuesday morning. He has been in contact with the patients he treated in that time.

“I hope my personal situation serves as a signal for all health-care workers, and others, to be vigilant about their health. Everyone needs to take precautions and self-monitor for any symptoms.”
