Word from the street

To gauge the reaction to the Colonization Road name change debate, we took the question directly to residents. We handed out 149 flyers to residents along Colonization East and West, asking if they were for or against the change, why, and what suggestions they had for new names. The following are the responses we received.


Two new cases in region


Northwestern Health Unit has received reports of two new positive COVID-19 test results in our area – one in the Kenora region, and one in the Dryden / Red Lake region. Follow up with the persons involved and their contacts has started according to protocol. Anyone who is identified as a contact for these cases will be contacted directly.

Several cases in a Kenora surge have been linked to people not isolating while they wait for COVID-19 test results to return, because their symptoms have improved.

Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) has received reports of five positive COVID-19 test results in the Kenora region. That brings the Kenora count up to 21 active cases, with 20 new cases announced in the past two weeks.
