MORRISBURG – Work has not begun yet on the Morrisburg Roundabout and Street Scape project, but shovels are still expected in the ground before the summer begins. The project, which will see a new roundabout constructed at the intersection of County Roads 2 and 31, along with improvements to CR2 in the business area of Morrisburg, was originally to be completed in 2020. The project was delayed by awaiting federal funding approval and the COVID-19 pandemic. Further delays occurred in January when the as-designed project was tendered and came back nearly $2 million over budget. Since then the project has undergone a redesign to some of the features around the street scape portion of the project. SDG Counties Transportation and Planning Director Ben deHaan said that the revisions are still underway but are expected to be close to a final product by April 23rd. “As we’ve gone through the revisions, we have been working very closely with South Dundas,” deHaan said. The design changes will not be going back to SDG Counties council for approval, rather to South Dundas council, which is a partner in the project. “My understanding is that [South Dundas] council will be formally reviewing and blessing the ‘revised’ design before it goes out to tender,” deHaan explained. He said he expected the project will be tendered in the first part of May. SDG usually follows a three-week tender period, which in this case is expected to be awarded at the end of May. County council will have to approve the final tender before shovels can go into the ground on the $4.2 million dollar project. “Provided things go as expected, I fully anticipate that this work will be done in 2021,” deHaan said. “The pandemic continues to make it somewhat difficult to make accurate predictions.” The province is currently under a six-week stay-at-home order and many construction projects have been shutdown. Municipal infrastructure falls under the essential construction category and is permitted to continue. The project received 73 per cent of its funding via the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, a Federal-Provincial program. SDG Counties and the Municipality of South Dundas will split the remaining 27 per cent of the infrastructure project cost. Phillip Blancher, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, The Leader
HIGH RIVER, Alta. — A vaccination clinic for thousands of workers at a southern Alberta beef-packing plant has been postponed due to a delay in a shipment of the Moderna vaccine. Cargill spokesman Daniel Sullivan says the company is disappointed, but remains ready to help vaccinate its employees. Alberta Health says it was counting on the Moderna shipment for the clinic, which will open as soon as possible. Nearly half the 2,200 workers at Cargill's facility at High River, south of Calgary, contracted the novel coronavirus and two employees died. Immunizations were to be provided by occupational health nurses with Cargill and by doctors with local primary health networks. The Cargill statement says the company believes vaccines play a critical role in slowing and stopping the devastating effects of COVID-19.

CORNWALL – The curve is not flat yet, but there are signs that infection rates are beginning to slow in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit region. Between April 16-19, the region added an average of 36 new COVID-19 infections per day to the overall tally, which is a slower rate than in the previous week. “Maybe we are seeing the effect of Easter gatherings starting to lessen,” said Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, medical officer of health for the EOHU. He said that the latest restrictions are starting to show an improvement, especially around key indicators like the rolling seven-day average of new cases per 100,000 people. But variants of concern are still making up a majority of new cases. “More than two-thirds of cases are VoCs,” Roumeliotis said. After weeks of increases to new cases in the region, the seven-day average for the EOHU topped out at 156.7 on April 15th, and as of April 19th stood at 130.8. Data from the Ministry of Health put the reproductive rate of the virus in the EOHU region at 1.25. This means 100 people with active COVID-19 infections would infect 125 people. New infections in densely populated areas like Cornwall have driven the numbers upwards. The region’s active case count as of April 19 was 510, a number unseen since mid-January in the height of the second wave. The new cases have pushed the regional tally of overall cases to 4,103 since the pandemic began. A surge of cases has also pushed intensive care units and the COVID-19 ICU in Cornwall to near capacity limits. ICU levels in the region are at 86 per cent occupancy, and the COVID-19 ICU is at 40 per cent. There are 33 people hospitalized, nine of those in ICU. The regional death count has increased to 93, an increase of four people from a week ago. Locally, South Dundas has added two new cases, increasing the active cases to four in the municipality, and 77 cases since the pandemic began. North Dundas has 13 active cases (118 total), South Stormont 36 active cases (272 total), and North Stormont 17 active cases (103 total). The City of Cornwall has about one-third of all active cases with 155. According to statistics compiled by the health unit through contact tracing those who contracted COVID-19 since September 1, 2021, 47 per cent of all cases are from household transmission. Household transmission includes gatherings in a private setting like a house or dinner party. Seven per cent of cases are contracted from congregate living settings such as long-term care homes. LTC homes were the first vaccinated so cases among residents are far rarer than before late-December 2020. Before the announced switch to remote-learning, cases in schools were increasing in the EOHU region and made up 24 per cent of case acquisitions. Public gatherings made up only six per cent of cases contracted, while workplace transmission accounted for five per cent. Eating at food premises like restaurants and bars accounted for only three per cent, and travel two per cent. The eight month data range includes cases contracted in both the second and current third wave of the pandemic. Vaccinations at the six major clinics continued this past week. Roumeliotis estimated that nearly 10,000 doses were administered between April 10-16. Since COVID-19 vaccines became available in the region, 37,889 vaccination doses have been administered.

The Baltimore factory contracted to make Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine was dirty, didn’t follow proper manufacturing procedures and had poorly trained staff, resulting in contamination of material that was going to be put in the shots, U.S. regulators said Wednesday. The Food and Drug Administration released a statement and a 13-page report detailing findings from its recent inspection of the now-idle Emergent BioSciences factory. Agency inspectors said a batch of bulk drug substance for J&J's single-shot vaccine was contaminated with material used to make COVID-19 vaccines for another Emergent client, AstraZeneca. That batch, reportedly enough to make about 15 million J&J vaccine doses, had to be thrown out. Other problems cited in the inspection report were peeling paint, black and brown residue on floors and walls in the factory, inadequate cleaning and employees not following procedures to prevent contamination. Nothing made at the factory for J&J has been distributed, the FDA noted. The nearly 8 million doses of J&J vaccine given in the U.S. came from Europe. Both Emergent and Johnson & Johnson said Wednesday that they are working to fix the problems as quickly as possible. After quality problems surfaced late last month, J&J took control of the factory. The Biden administration now is working to move AstraZeneca vaccine manufacturing to another factory. AstraZeneca's vaccine is not yet authorized in the U.S. The Baltimore factory halted all production late last week at the request of the FDA. The agency hasn’t given emergency approval to the factory, which is needed before any vaccine material made there can be distributed. All the bulk vaccine substance Emergent has made, plus early batches made there and then put in vials and packaged by other J&J contractors, are being stored and will undergo additional testing by the FDA, the agency said. “We are doing everything we can to ensure that the COVID-19 vaccines that are given to the people of this nation have met the agency’s high standards for quality, safety and effectiveness," the FDA said. At the moment, use of the J&J vaccine is on hold in the U.S. as government health officials investigate its possible connection to very rare blood clots. Their decision on whether to allow the vaccine to be given could come Friday. On Tuesday, the European Medicines Agency’s safety committee said its review found the blood clots are a very rare side effect but that the J&J vaccine's benefits outweigh that risk. Emergent, a little-known drug manufacturing contractor, was granted a major role in the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus. The company has been repeatedly cited by the FDA for problems ranging from poorly trained employees to cracked vials and mould around one of its facilities, according to records obtained by The Associated Press. FDA inspectors started checking the Emergent factory in Baltimore on April 12 and finished their investigation on Tuesday. The inspectors reviewed security camera footage that showed employees carrying unsealed bags of medical waste around in the factory, with the bags touching materials ready to be used to make vaccine batches. The footage also showed employees moving between manufacturing areas for the two vaccines without documenting whether they changed protective gowns and showered in between, as required. The inspection report noted that Emergent didn't sufficiently investigate the contamination of the later-discarded J&J batch and didn't appear to have done any extra cleaning after the contamination was discovered. "There is no assurance that other batches have not been subject to cross-contamination," the report stated. It also noted that the factory had inadequate procedures for assuring that the vaccine substance met all quality and purity requirements. It’s unclear how long it will take the companies to resolve all the problems at the factory, known as Bayview. J&J has pledged to provide 100 million doses for the U.S. by the end of May and 1 billion doses globally by the end of the year. “Right now, we can’t speculate on any potential impact this could have on the timing of our vaccine deliveries,” J&J said in a statement. ___ The Associated Press Health and Science Department receives support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.

OTTAWA — Deputy Minister Chrystia Freeland is urging Canadian companies to have patience as the federal government faces growing questions about reopening the economy and border. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce hosted Freeland at a virtual event today to discuss the budget, and she was pressed on the government's plans to end the border closure. Public Safety Minister Bill Blair on Tuesday extended restrictions on non-essential travel from overseas and across the border with the U.S. for another month. Without asking for specific dates, Chamber president Perrin Beatty suggested the government could lay out the criteria it will use to determine whether the border restrictions can end. Freeland refused to provide any specifics, however, acknowledging Canadian companies want predictability before repeatedly underscoring the unpredictable nature of COVID-19. Freeland, who is also Canada’s finance minister, said everyone needs to be flexible at the moment as the country continues grappling with the pandemic. And she suggested rapid-testing kits could soon be flowing to companies even as she encouraged all Canadians to get vaccinated as quickly as possible.

MORRISBURG – If you live in South Dundas, receiving a COVID-19 vaccine has meant having to leave the municipality to go to a clinic or a pharmacy. That may be changing soon. The Eastern Ontario Health Unit is working on a plan to offer a vaccination clinic in South Dundas by the first week of May. EOHU Medical Officer of Health Dr. Paul Roumeliotis explained during his April 19th media briefing that details were still being worked out. “We’re aiming for the end of April or the first week of May,” he said, adding he had been on the phone with South Dundas Mayor Steven Byvelds earlier Monday to discuss the matter. “We’re just trying to figure out where the best place would be.” He said the EOHU is looking at the Morrisburg Arena as a possible location now that the ice has been removed for the season, but that facility has some accessibility challenges. “The problem is it was built in the ‘60s and accessibility is an issue, so we’re looking at ways around it,” said Roumeliotis adding that the health unit is also looking at Seaway District High School in Iroquois. “We are actively doing on-site visits at this point,” he said. “We have always offered our help to Dr. Paul and the Eastern Ontario Health Unit to set up some sort of vaccination clinic in South Dundas knowing the needs of our residents are just as important as anywhere else,” South Dundas Mayor Steven Byvelds told The Leader. The municipality has offered facilities like the Morrisburg Arena and Matilda Hall as large venues. “In our current discussions we are looking at the Morrisburg Arena as a suitable mass vaccination clinic,” Byvelds explained. There are some slight accessibility issues to address with the arena but Byvelds said the municipality is working on those with the health unit. A similar arena type of mass vaccination clinic recently held at the Joel Steele Arena in Winchester vaccinated about 1,000 people in a day. Byvelds said he hopes the arena will be the site chosen for South Dundas even though the arena is not technically in the geographic centre of the municipality. “It’s central-south. It’s closer to where more of the population resides,” he said. “In this day and age we need to try to get the most number of people, especially those who live in settings where more people congregate and the villages tend to be that way.” South Dundas has been a vaccine desert since supply first reached the EOHU in late December. The nearest health unit clinics are in Winchester and Cornwall.Both administer the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. There are six pharmacies in the EOHU region approved to vaccinate using the AstraZeneca vaccine, one in Winchester and two in Cornwall. Two of the three pharmacies in South Dundas have applied to administer COVID-19 vaccinations. Neither Seaway Valley Pharmacy in Morrisburg, nor Gilmer Pharmacy in Iroquois have received approval or supply yet. Roumeliotis said that he has been working on trying to get approval from the Ontario government for more pharmacies. “We’re working on it,” he said. “We have asked to add, particularly in that area, South Dundas and Ingleside as well.” Roumeliotis said he has been working with Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell on it with a bit of optimism. “Looking at AstraZeneca uptake and numbers coming in we’ve asked to add more,” he explained. “We were told we can have potentially as many [pharmacies] as we had for flu vaccinations.” There are between 30 and 40 pharmacies in the EOHU region that offered flu vaccinations according to Roumeliotis. “I’m hoping we can get some news on that,” he added. The provincial government last expanded COVID-19 vaccinations in pharmacies on April 11th. Phillip Blancher, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, The Leader
