The Northwestern Health Unit is reporting one new case of COVID-19 in Sioux Lookout. 

Follow-up is underway, and all contacts will be notified. 

The NWHU is asking the public to please assume COVID-19 is in your community and practice physical distancing, wash your hands often, and disinfect commonly touched surfaces regularly. 

One new case was reported yesterday for the NWHU area as well, but the person is not actually in the region, and was listed as part of the NWHU area due to an old address. 

Total number of confirmed cases in the region now sits at 18, with 16 recovered. In total, 1241 tests are still pending.
