For the first time since Sunday, the Northwestern Health Unit has reported no new cases of COVID-19 across the catchment area. 

Currently, there are 4 active cases across the district. Two cases in the Sioux Lookout Health Region and one case each in the Kenora and Rainy River health Region. 

NWHU recommends that everyone, including those who have been vaccinated, assume COVID-19 is in their community and practise preventive measures like physical distancing, wearing a mask in enclosed public spaces and when physical distancing is a challenge, good hand hygiene, and not touching their face. Anyone who has symptoms, or who has been in contact with a positive case, should self-isolate and get tested.  For information about getting tested, please visit the NWHU website for instructions on how to schedule an appointment at an assessment centre.
