Staff with the Northwestern Health Unit are announcing another 12 new cases of COVID-19 across their catchment area.

Today’s cases include seven new positive COVID-19 test results in the Fort Frances health hub, four in the Kenora health hub, and one in the Sioux Lookout health hub.

Everyone is asked to assume COVID-19 is spreading in your community, and to continue following Ontario’s stay-at-home orders. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms is asked to immediately self-isolate, get tested and remain in isolation until your test results are known.

Today marks the 61st straight day that at least one case of COVID-19 has been reported in the health unit catchment area.
