Yet again, no positive coronavirus tests have come back to the Porcupine Health Unit in the latest testing period.  That leaves us at 344 since the pandemic began.

Indigenous, Métis and Inuit people 55 and older can get their COVID-19 vaccinations next week.

In Hearst, the clinic is at the Claude Larose Arena on Friday. Then on Saturday, it’s at the Kap Sports Palace; and Monday at the Smooth Rock Falls Community Centre. Walk-ins are not accepted – you must have an appointment by calling the health unit or going here.
