The number of cases of COVID-19 in Ontario have unfortunately taken a turn for the worse, with increasing case counts in several jurisdictions. While the spike in cases is primarily in urban centres, it serves to caution us against letting our guard down now. The precautions we have been taking against an outbreak of COVID-19 in Neyaashiinigmiing have been successful, to date, and we must remain vigilant.
