Thunder Bay District Health Unit confirms 1 new case of COVID-19 Thursday


The Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) confirmed one new case of COVID-19 in its catchment area Thursday, bringing the total in the area to 77, with 65 of those listed as resolved.

Case #77 is a man in his 40s, who is from the Thunder Bay area and is self-isolating after being exposed to the virus through a close contact.

The total number of cases in northwestern Ontario as of Thursday afternoon is 93.

There are no active cases in the Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) catchment area as of May 7.

All 16 cases in the NWHU jurisdiction are considered resolved, including a person whose primary residence is in southern Ontario and has not returned to the region since contracting the virus while travelling internationally.​​​

If you think you may have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, first self-isolate and then use Ontario’s Self-Assessment Tool to see if you need to seek further care.

There is now an Online Portal to access COVID-19 test results directly from the provincial laboratory system. This portal was launched April 12 by the Ontario government and offers fast and secure access to test results on your computer and mobile device, the TBDHU stated.

For additional information about COVID-19 and the TBDHU area, please see the TBDHU website, social media channels or contact the TBDHU at (807) 625-5900 or 1-888-294-6630 .
