COVID19 Update Feb.16th, 2021

February 16, 2021

As the Ontario wide “stay at home” order is being lifted effective today, we wanted to provide some guidelines to clarify what that means. Our region: Northwestern Ontario is moving into the YELLOW stage. However, Thunder Bay will move into the RED stage and we continue to advise on essential travel only. We will continue to update the community through the Lac Seul Emergency Covid-19 page and Lac Seul Webpage.
