The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit is reporting three new positive cases of COVID-19 Thursday.
Two more resolved cases were also added.
All three cases are under the age of 40. Two are the result of close contact while the other is the result of community spread.
There are now nine active cases in the Health Unit’s region, three of which are in the Nipissing District.
Dr. Jim Chirico, Medical Officer of Health says the Health Unit is monitoring the increase in cases seen in the area since October.
“We must act now to prevent further spread of COVID-19, and help protect our vulnerable populations, preserve our vital hospital resources and prevent lockdowns,” Dr. Chirico said in a media release.
