Remember to stay home as much as possible, limit close contact to your household (the people you live with) and stay at least 2 metres apart from everyone else, and limit trips outside your home to necessities. Always stay home if you have symptoms, even if they are mild, stay 2 metres apart from people you don’t live with, and wear a mask or face covering in indoor public spaces or any time physical distancing is not possible.

March 5, 2021 Update on the COVID-19 Vaccine in our Area

The COVID-19 vaccine will be offered in the Northwestern region according to the Ministry of Health’s 3-phase plan which identifies priority populations.

There will be a limited supply of vaccines at first, so people who are more vulnerable or at higher risk of infection and serious illness will be prioritized in the rollout of the early phases of Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine program. As new vaccines are approved for use in Canada, they will be more widely available in Ontario. To learn more about when vaccines will be available and who will be able to get a vaccine please visit:

Until a vaccine is widely available, we all have to continue to follow the public health rules for your region and take everyday actions to help stop the spread of the virus.

Please check out the following resources for information on the vaccines:

For up to date information on COVID-19 in the Northwestern Ontario region, visit the Northwestern Health Unit website.

We will be posting more information about the local vaccination roll-out as it becomes available.
