There has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Gillam/Fox Lake Cree Nation District in the Northern Health Region as of this past Saturday.
This comes after a resident of the Prairie Mountain Health Region who had travelled to the District from August 13-21 was confirmed to have COVID-19. This person has no connection with Manitoba Hydro and is now home recovering.
Anyone presenting at the Gillam Hospital over the weekend was being screened for COVID-19. Those showing symptoms were tested and told to self-isolate. Those who were asymptomatic had their information taken and were told they would receive a test in their home today.
