THUNDER BAY - The Thunder Bay District Health Unit has confirmed two new cases of COVID-19. Both are travel-related, the health unit reported in a release issued on Friday.

One case involves a Thunder Bay-area woman in her fifties, with an episode date of July 27. The other involves a Thunder Bay-area man in his 60s, with an episode date of July 23. The date is normally calculated based on the earliest time the individual experienced symptoms or was tested for the virus.

Both cases involve travel within the country. Responding to an inquiry, the health unit said it could not comment further on travel destination due to privacy concerns.

The health unit has now reported five new cases in the 13 days since July 18, following a fifteen day gap in new reported cases.

With the new cases, there have now been a total of 97 cases in the district. Of those, 92 were considered resolved as of Friday morning, with four active and one death from the virus that occurred in April.
