The CEO of the Northern Health Region Helga Bryant says as of yesterday there were only three cases of COVID-19 reported in the north and they are recovering well in their homes. She says she has to believe that our measures done here in northern Manitoba to date have just made a huge difference particularly given our vulnerable population. She commends many of the First Nations communities and the efforts they have taken to ensure travel in and out of their communities is kept to a minimum as that has been hugely helpful in promoting that message about stay home, stay home, stay home.
Bryant adds we must all remain vigilant and follow the recommended protocols. She also advises you to be cautious about information provided on social media with accurate information on their website www.northernhealthregion.com.
