The number of active cases of COVID-19 in the region fell slightly from last week, the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit is reporting.
The region saw its active case count drop to 11 Monday morning from 13 Friday. By Monday afternoon, that number fell to 10.
The net decrease is the result of six cases — all in Nipissing District — having since resolved, while the region added three new cases.
Of the three new cases, one is in Nipissing District and two are in Parry Sound District.
The new cases include one person 19 years of age or younger and two individuals between 20 and 39 years of age.
All were exposed to COVID-19 through close contact with a case and are isolating at home. The health unit does not specify which district each individual case resides.
The new cases are the region’s 77th, 78th and 79th.
There have now been 55 total cases of COVID-19 in Nipissing District since the pandemic began and 24 in Parry Sound District, including one death. No one is currently being hospitalized.
