Ryan Rocca reports:

A possible privacy breach has been reported at a Pickering long-term care home that’s been hard-hit by a novel coronavirus outbreak.

Long-term Care Minister Merrilee Fullerton said the possible breach is regarding “individual resident personal health info” at Orchard Villa long-term care.

A spokesperson for the home confirmed to Global News that an internal investigation was conducted, but further information regarding the breach wasn’t provided.
