The local health unit says they received information that a protester showed up at the demonstration while positive with COVID-19.
The event took place at 1 p.m. on Saturday outside the Cornwall Community Hospital.
Now, the health unit asks anyone who attended the protest to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for the next nine days.
Anyone who develops symptoms should self-isolate and get tested immediately.
The hospital, like many across the province, implemented a vaccine mandate for its staff. This was voted through by the organization’s board of directors on Aug. 25.
Similar protests have taken place at hospitals around Ontario over the last week.
The health unit did not immediately respond to a request for more information. The Cornwall Community Hospital said it is working on a request for comment.
