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.
