One is in Nipissing District and the other is in Parry Sound. 

The Health Unit is also reporting 120 new cases of COVID-19 since it’s last update on Friday.

Earlier this month the province announced changes in testing protocols, focusing on symptomatic people living or working in high-risk settings or part of a vulnerable population.  

The general public has been told to avoid seeking a PCR test and if you are showing symptoms to assume you have the virus and to self-isolate.

There are four outbreaks in our region.

Three are in congregate living settings.  

One involves seven cases with fewer than five at the other two.

There are 25 cases involved with an outbreak at the North Bay Jail.
