The Northwestern Health Unit has confirmed a fifth case of COVID-19 in Dryden.

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.

Dryden previously had four resolved cases of the virus reported. A new case was also confirmed in Sioux Lookout over the weekend, bringing their community’s total to two cases.

One new case was reported on Friday 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.
