TORONTO — The federal government has approved an Ottawa company's made-in-Canada rapid COVID-19 test, Health Canada confirmed Saturday as the nation's top doctor warned the virus's impact on the health-care system showed no signs of abating. The test developed by Spartan Bioscience is performed by a doctor and provides on-site results within an hour, a spokeswoman for the federal agency said. Spartan bills the test as the first "truly mobile, rapid PCR test for COVID-19 for the Canadian market." "The Spartan system will be able to provide quality results to remote communities, industries and settings with limited lab access, helping relieve the burden on overwhelmed healthcare facilities," the company said in a news release Saturday. The company originally unveiled a rapid test for COVID-19 last spring but had to voluntarily recall it and perform additional studies after Health Canada expressed some reservations. At the time, Spartan said Health Canada was concerned about the "efficacy of the proprietary swab" for the testing product. The new version uses "any nasopharyngeal swab" rather than one of the company's own design, Health Canada said, and meets the agency's requirements for both safety and effectiveness. The Spartan COVID-19 System was developed through clinical evaluation completed in Canada and the U.S., with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute as one of the testing locations. The company said it has already started production on the rapid tests. The news comes as Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada's chief public health officer, warned that COVID-19 continues to strain the health-care system even as daily case counts decline in several long-standing hot spots. "As severe outcomes lag behind increased disease activity, we can expect to see ongoing heavy impacts on our healthcare system and health workforce for weeks to come," she said in a written statement. Surging new infection rates continued to show signs of easing in multiple provinces, though one jurisdiction was poised to impose new restrictions in a bid to stem the ongoing spread. Public health officials in New Brunswick reported 17 new cases across the province, 10 of which were in the Edmundston region, which was set to go into a lockdown first thing Sunday morning. Starting at midnight, non-essential travel is prohibited in and out of the area, which borders northern Maine and Quebec's Bas-St-Laurent region. The health order forces the closure of all non-essential businesses as well as schools and public spaces, including outdoor ice rinks and ski hills. All indoor and outdoor gatherings among people of different households are prohibited. Saskatchewan, meanwhile, logged 274 new cases of the virus and three new deaths, while Manitoba counted three more deaths and 216 new diagnoses. Alberta logged 573 new cases and 13 virus-related deaths in the past 24 hours, while both Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador reported no new infections on Saturday. Both Quebec and Ontario reported fewer cases Saturday — 1,685 and 2,359 respectively. But officials in Ontario expressed concern about a highly contagious U.K. variant of the virus that was detected at a long-term care facility north of Toronto. Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit confirmed the variant was behind the outbreak at Roberta Place Retirement Lodge in Barrie, Ont., where 32 residents have died of COVID-19 and dozens of others have tested positive. "Stringent and consistent efforts are needed to sustain a downward trend in case counts and strongly suppress COVID-19 activity across Canada," Tam said. "This will not only prevent more tragic outcomes, but will help to ensure that new virus variants of concern do not have the opportunity to spread." Fears of variants that can circulate quickly come as the federal government considers a mandatory quarantine in hotels for travellers returning to Canada.

Dr. Deena Hinshaw says in a series of tweets that the province has seen 573 new cases of the novel coronavirus over the previous 24 hours. That's out of a total of 10,894 tests, for a test-positivity rate of 5.3 per cent.

Saskatchewan currently has 3,161 active COVID-19 cases. --- 3:10 p.m. Manitoba is reporting three additional deaths of people with COVID-19 as well as 216 new cases of the virus. The province says a rapid testing centre is now taking appointments for all teachers and other school staff who work with students. The Fast Pass centre is in Winnipeg and promises same-day results.

Arviat, a community of about 2,800, had been the centre of Nunavut's largest COVID-19 outbreak and at one point had 222 cases.

E.J. Liddell scored 20 points and No. 15 Ohio State never trailed in a 74-62 victory over No. 10 Wisconsin that continued the Buckeyes’ recent road mastery of ranked opponents. Ohio State (12-4, 6-4 Big Ten) has beaten Top 15 teams in each of its last three road games to underscore the conference's lack of a true homecourt advantage this season with no spectators due to the pandemic. The Buckeyes beat then-No. 15 Rutgers on Jan. 9 and then--No. 14 Illinois on Jan. 16.
A 97-year-old woman in Montreal may be the first person in Quebec to receive a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, albeit accidentally. Two weeks after receiving the Moderna vaccine, Antonietta Pollice was given a dose of the Pfizer-Bio-NTech vaccine, said her daughter, Patrizia Di Biase. Pollice, who has dementia, did not understand what vaccine she was receiving, Di Biase said. The mix-up has left the daughter livid. "Shocked. I was upset," she said. "How can that happen? 'Mistakes happen,' well, it's not a small mistake." Di Biase said Pollice received a dose of the Moderna vaccine on Jan. 7 at CHSLD Herron. With the owners of the private seniors' home deciding to close the facility, Pollice was transferred temporarily to CHSLD Joseph-François-Perrault on Jan. 11. Di Biase said staff at the CHSLD called her on Friday to inform her that Pollice had accidentally been given the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. She says she was in shock and had staff repeat the information twice before she hung up because she couldn't process the news. "It's unacceptable. They have to do something about it," Di Biase said. "I don't want this to happen again. It's happened now, we can't go back for my mom, but we need to go forward and have everybody know." Quebec Premier François Legault made the decision earlier this month to delay all second doses of the vaccine in favour of inoculating more people with a first dose instead. The government has said that everyone who received the first dose so far will get the second after 90 days. Di Biase said she has reached out to Quebec Public Health seeking answers. A spokesperson for the regional health authority in charge of CHSLD Joseph-François-Perrault said the situation has been brought to its attention and it is currently investigating. The CIUSSS de l'Est-de-l'Île-de-Montréal wouldn't give further details, citing confidentiality. But spokesperson Valérie Lafleur said that if this happened, a rigorous review would be put in place involving the medical team, public health and a team from infection prevention and control. Mixing COVID-19 vaccines Most concerning to Di Biase is the effect of inoculating her mother with two different vaccines. The Public Health Agency of Canada says Canadians should receive the same COVID-19 vaccine for both shots — except in very specific and unlikely situations. According to the public health agency's recommendations on the use of the vaccine, "no data exist on the interchangeability of COVID-19 vaccines." Both the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Public Health England share those same recommendations. Infectious disease specialist and microbiologist Dr. Donald Vinh, who is also an adviser to the federal government's COVID-19 task force, said each individual's situation is different but that the jury is still out on mixing vaccines. "The short answer is that we don't know anything," he said. "There is no data to determine whether or not that's efficacious. There is simply an experience, or more of a gut feeling, among people who have vaccine and immunology experience that it is probably acceptable to use different mNRA-based vaccines." Jörg Fritz, an associate professor in the department of microbiology and immunology at McGill University in Montreal, agrees. Still, despite the lack of data, he said mixing the two vaccines should not be immediate cause for alarm. "I wouldn't be too worried because both vaccines were approved, they went through rigorous testing," Fritz said. "It shouldn't happen, a mix-up like that, but I don't think it'll have any negative consequences. There is no scientific reason to believe there are any negative consequences."

A male teenager who worked at an Ontario long-term care home has died of COVID-19, the Middlesex-London public health unit said Saturday. Dan Flaherty, spokesperson for the Middlesex-London Health Unit, said one of the three deaths it reported on its website Saturday is a staff person. The other two people who died, a man in his 60s and a woman in her 80s, were also associated with long-term care homes. The teen is the youngest person in the region to have died of COVID-19. The teen's age and workplace have not been released. "We are not able to provide any other information including the individual's exact age or the facility where they worked, as this could risk identifying them," Flaherty said in an email. Dr. Alex Summers, associate medical officer of health for the Middlesex-London Health Unit, told CBC News Network's Natasha Fatah that the young man was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 and was a staff member at a long-term care home. The diagnosis came within the last four weeks and his infectious period had actually resolved, Summers said. An investigation is underway into the exact cause of death, he said. Summers called it a "tragic young death" in the region. "It's certainly a very sad day and a reminder of how the impact of this pandemic can be felt," he said. "This is the youngest person who had been diagnosed with COVID who has died since the beginning of the pandemic for us in our region." 'It's a tragic day,' health official says Summers could not say if the young man had underlying health conditions. The investigation is looking into that, he added. He said the young man was not working at the home when he was infectious. "At this point in time, we do not believe there were any other exposures but we will have to continue to investigate," Summers said. He added, however, that the health unit believes some members of his immediate household may end up testing positive for the virus. "COVID-19 transmits very readily among households," he said. Summers said the anticipated spread to his family is "just another reminder of how infectious this disease certainly can be." Members of the health unit have spoken to the young man's family, he said. "It's a tragic day," he said. "I think there is a sense of sorrow among us today." In an email to CBC Toronto, Ontario's long term care ministry confirmed the death of a long-term care home worker but provided no other details. "We extend our deepest condolences to their family, friends and colleagues," Rob McMahon, spokesperson for the ministry, said in an email on Saturday. "Due to sensitivities and requirements for protection of privacy for Ontarians, and for protecting Ontarians' confidential personal and health information, we cannot comment on individual cases," McMahon added. "We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of all long-term care staff working under challenging conditions to care for our most vulnerable during the pandemic."
A photo of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from Wednesday's U.S. presidential inauguration has been not just a huge internet hit, but also a form of advertisement for a Saskatchewan businesswoman. Memes featuring a masked, cross-armed and mitten-wearing Sanders have been floating around social media sites, showing Sanders Photoshopped into a wide range of settings — ice fishing, sitting with the Golden Girls, and also spending time with Karen Boldt from Hepburn, Sask. She makes felted wool mittens from recycled sweaters, and Sanders's distinctive mittens have created a big interest in her business, Something from Nothing Mittens. "I have been getting messages pretty much non-stop since then," Boldt said in an interview with CBC Saskatchewan's The Afternoon Edition. While she is not the creator of Sanders's famous mittens, she and her assistant have designed similar-looking pairs. "One particular pair I actually happened to make last week," said Boldt. "I posted them and I think within 30 minutes they sold, and I had orders for other ones with that same fabric." The Saskatchewan businesswoman has been making mittens from thrifted wool sweaters since 2009. Usually she and her assistant create between 500 and 600 pairs per year, Boldt said. LISTEN | As It Happens finds out how Bernie Sanders got his now-famous mittens: Since the Bernie Sanders meme went viral, Boldt has received orders from inside and outside the province, including Michigan, Maryland and Calgary. The current spike in interest is special for Boldt, with business usually slowing down for her after Christmas. "I credit that to Bernie," she said, who has "brought the spotlight on" mitten makers.
Jimmie Rodgers, singer of the 1957 hits “Honeycomb” and “Kisses Sweeter Than Wine” whose career in music and movies was disrupted by a severe head injury a decade later, has died at age 87. Rodgers died from kidney disease on Jan. 18 in Palm Desert, California, and had also tested positive for COVID-19, publicist Alan Eichler said Saturday, citing family. Rodgers performed for $10 a night around Nashville while stationed there with the U.S. Air Force after the Korean War.

Arizona Republicans on Saturday reelected Kelli Ward as party chair, giving a second term to one of Donald Trump's most unflinching supporters even after the GOP lost ground in the state last year. Ward's combative style delights Trump's strongest supporters but worries longtime GOP insiders who have watched the party turn off crucial voters in the suburbs. Ward came out on top in a four-way race, securing a narrow majority on the second ballot, according to a party spokesman.
Knicks Go went to the lead right out of the gate and dared the other 11 runners in the $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational to catch him.

''Great horses do great things,'' trainer Brad Cox said.
