A hepatitis C outbreak has been declared after five patients were diagnosed with the virus following treatment at the Tri-City Colonoscopy Clinic in Kitchener on Christmas Eve in 2013.
The patients were treated that day along with eight others, according to a report from Waterloo Region Public Health.
"At this point in time, Public Health has no
evidence that there was a risk to clients seen on other days at Tri-City
Colonoscopy Clinic," the report said.
