LETHBRIDGE, AB – Alberta Health Services is asking anyone who attended one of two house parties in south Lethbridge back in March to go get tested for COVID-19.

The South Zone released a series of Twitter posts late Thursday afternoon saying it’s a precautionary measure for anyone in attendance March 13 and/or March 20 due to exposure to a positive individual.

AHS says Public Health teams have confirmed “several” COVID-19 cases over the last week that link back to those two events held in the same household.

Those in attendance are asked to book a test, whether you’re symptomatic or not, and let staff know you are a close contact of a confirmed case.
