The North Bay-Parry Sound District Health Unit is reporting two new COVID-19 cases in the district today.  

The two cases, both connected to travel, are from the Parry Sound area of the Health Unit's jurisdiction. 

One is a male aged 40 to 59, who acquired it through travel.  His status is resolved. The other case is a female aged 40 to 59 who also acquired COVID-19 through travel.  The Health Unit says she is isolating.  

That brings the total number of cases in the district to 37 with four new cases reported last Friday.   

North Bay Mayor Al McDonald encouraged citizens to continue to be smart. 

"Locally, in North Bay, we are doing well, our citizens have taken this seriously," said McDonald via social media.  

"We need you to stay the course.

"I know this sounds like a broken record but I need to repeat.......follow the protocols to keep your risk low."

McDonald says the physical distancing rule is one of your best protections.

"If you can, wear a face covering but this does not substitute the 6-foot rule, good hygiene, staying home if not well," he said.  

"We do recognize there are individuals that can't wear face coverings due to medical conditions."
