The Health Unit reported 65 new cases Thursday, although testing protocols changed earlier this month across the province, focusing on symptomatic people living or working in high-risk settings or part of a vulnerable population.
Active cases total 271 across the region.
There are 91 cases associated with the outbreak at the North Bay Jail, which was declared on December 29th.
