The Health Unit website also shows there are now two cases in Parry Sound, up from one.

Nipissing still has five cases.

As for test results, 314 have come back negative while 107 are still pending.


Meantime, the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit is highlighting a provincial recommendation that residents stay home except for essential reasons.

Officials say the recommendations are being made to keep you, your loved ones and others healthy.

Essential reasons include:
– Access health care services;
– Shop for groceries;
– Pick-up medication at the pharmacy;
– Walk pets when required; and
– Support vulnerable community members with meeting the above needs.

They also say LIMIT the number of essential trips, PHYSICALLY DISTANCE yourself when in public by two meters and SELF-ISOLATE if you are elderly or have underlying health conditions.

As for federal restrictions, officials point out everyone entering Canada MUST isolate for 14 days whether or not you have symptoms and MUST STAY INSIDE their home and not leave unless it is to seek medical attention.
