Health and Social Services corrects internal privacy issue

To The Haldimand Press

HALDIMAND—Haldimand Norfolk Health and Social Services has identified and corrected an internal privacy issue regarding individuals who took a COVID-19 test prior to May 19, 2020.

Security access on a file containing names, health card numbers, and test results was inadvertently made broader than required, allowing a small number of employees who otherwise would not have had access to the file to view the information.

The issue was discovered by a supervisor, and immediate action was taken to restrict access to only those staff members who require it for the performance of their duties.

No action is required by anyone who may have been impacted.
