Rickford hearing concerns non-essential travel across the Ontario-Manitoba border

Rickford hearing concerns non-essential travel across the Ontario-Manitoba border

COVID-19 increasing with Thunder Bay at 13 cases

KENORA, ONTARIO  ~ April 5, 2020  (LSN)  Greg Rickford MPP, Kenora-Rainy River,  stated I continue to hear from concerned constituents, including municipal and Indigenous leaders, and The All Nations Health Partners OHT about the on-going non-essential travel across the Ontario-Manitoba border. Kenora and the surrounding areas are still seeing growing numbers of cottagers return to the area.

I have been very clear: the Northwestern Health Unit and our local hospitals - Lake of the Woods District HospitalDryden Regional Health Centre , Riverside Health Care , do not have the capacity to serve non-resident patients during the COVID-19 outbreak.

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

All options are on the table to restrict non-essential travel across our northwestern border. These are unprecedented times, and I am asking all cottagers and seasonal residents to return to primary residences as soon as possible.

Our dedicated health care and essential services workers are working around the clock to combat the spread of COVID-19 and we are asking everyone who calls Kenora their second home to please respect these efforts.

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Across Northern Ontario 
Northwest Health Unit                     5 cases
Thunder Bay District Health Unit   13 cases
Algoma District Health Unit              7 cases
Sudbury District Health Unit           26  cases
