These staff members are currently isolating and recovering at home. It is with deep sadness that we share that 11 residents have passed as a result of this virus.”

Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) also report they have been advised that a recent positive test on a TBDHU resident who resides in a district community was incorrect due to an issue at the lab that analyzed the test. This individual is no longer considered a case and will be removed from the case count provincially and from our reporting on the TBDHU website.

There have been 13 deaths from COVID-19 in the district.
