MONTREAL—A staff member at a private long-term care home in suburban Montreal where dozens of residents died during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has tested positive for the disease, the local health agency said Sunday as Quebec reported its highest single-day total of COVID-19 cases since May.

Hélène Bergeron-Gamache, a spokeswoman for the CIUSSS-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal, said the agency was informed Saturday morning that a staff member at Résidence Herron tested positive for COVID-19.

Eleven residents who had been in contact with that person have been tested for COVID-19 and are now self-isolating in their rooms, Bergeron-Gamache said in an email.

Three other staff members who were in contact with the infected person have also been tested and are in self-isolation as they wait for their test results, she said.
