She says health officials are seeing a higher percentage of new cases that are close contacts to known cases and that means some people who show mild symptoms are not staying home as they should be.

Here in the South Zone, there were nine new cases confirmed over the past four days including three in Lethbridge and one in Lethbridge County.
