The Northwestern Health Unit has confirmed a second case of Covid-19 in Kenora, 5 days after the first case was confirmed. 

The case is a close contact of a known case and was already self-isolating. The health unit says they have been communicating daily with the individual as a contact, and further in-depth investigation is underway to verify that all contacts are identified and are self-isolating as well. 

The health unit also reports that the first case in Kenora is resolved. 

This case brings the total for the Northwestern Health Unit area to 16, following two new cases reported in Atikokan earlier this week. Of those 16 cases, 12 are resolved.
