No change in the number of cases of COVID-19 in the Porcupine Health Unit’s jurisdiction.  We’re still at 76 cases and three still active.

The health unit is starting to collect more information from anyone who tests positive or has symptoms.

That’s prompted by evidence that some people and communities are more susceptible to the virus.  Medical officer of health Dr. Lianne Catton says it will allow the health unit to identify who might be affected more.  Providing the information is voluntary.
