North Bay and Parry Sound COVID lockdown to end Monday

The area covered by the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit will emerge from lockdown in the coming days, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health said Thursday.

Dr. David Williams confirmed the area will enter into the provincial COVID response framework.

“Three health units that have been out of the framework up until now, in the stay-at-home order, namely Toronto, Peel and North Bay, they will be re-entering the framework as of midnight on Sunday coming up,” Williams said.

The area remained in lockdown as North Bay dealt with an outbreak at Skyline-Lancelot Apartments, where the presence of a highly contagious COVID variant was confirmed.
