The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit is reporting a new COVID-19 case in our area.

Case #39 is a female between 60-79 years old.

The Health Unit reports she is self-isolating and she was exposed to the virus through close contact of another case.

The region has seen three new cases in the last week after going over two months without a new case.

This comes as the province recorded its single highest daily case total since early June with 313 added Monday.
