Dear Neyaashiinigmiing Residents,

In today’s newsletter, we informed the community about the following information.

The Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry has provided Nawash with results of a recent study which found the virus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in 17 white-tailed deer from southwestern Ontario.

There has been a probable case of transmission of the virus from a deer to a human.

The Ministry is recommending to anyone handling wildlife to take precautions and follow health and safety recommendations when handling and processing wildlife.

As communicated previously,  one poultry flock in Neyaashiinigmiing tested positive in early April 2022 for Avian Influenza (AI) by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). AI is also known as H5N1 and the bird flu. Biosecurity protocols are still in place around the premises where the infected poultry flock was located.

decreased egg production                         - swelling around the head, neck and eyes
- coughing, gasping for air or sneezing    - nervous signs, tremors or lack of coordination
- diarrhea
