The Porcupine Health Unit will not issue a news release from now on every time a COVID-19 test comes back positive.

That word from medical officer of health, Doctor Lianne Catton.

“This does not mean that we are not providing the information nor does it mean that we are not providing daily regular updates.  That will continue,” she remarks.  “It will simply not be in the format of a formal news release. We have all the connections with all of our media partners who have been extremely helpful using all of their channels available to get this information out and we will continue to do so.

News director Bob McIntyre will be speaking with Doctor Catton Monday at 2:00pm on 98.1  and 101.1 Moose FM.
