The pandemic isn’t over, even as we flirt with zero current COVID-19 cases, so Cochrane Mayor Denis Clement is urging his constituents to get their vaccines.

“I just had a discussion with the Porcupine Health Unit,” he reports, “and at this point our community is at single doses 75.7% and at double doses, we’re at 59.8.”

“Certainly I’m promoting the double vaccination as quickly as possible, so that we can certainly flatten the curve for the pandemic.”

The only active case right now in the entire region is in Timmins.
