What is the difference? Biigtigong Nishnaabeg does not expect its members to self-isolate for travel between Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie for essential purposes.
However, members who travel outside of Northwestern Ontario will still be subject to Thunder Bay District Health Unit regulations for self-isolation. Example, admittance to the Marathon Arena is not permitted if you travel outside of Northwestern Ontario without self- isolating upon return.
Not sure what is expected of you when you return from essential travel? Contact Natasha Armstrong, Community Health Nurse, at 229-1836 ext 609 or email the ERT at email@example.com.
