Local COVID-19 Positive Case Information

Now that COVID-19 testing and contract tracing recommendations have changed, only the most vulnerable individuals and individuals associated with highest risk settings are eligible for PCR testing (nasal swabs). For more information on who is eligible for a COVID-19 PCR test, click on the link below.

Since COVID-19 testing can no longer be offered to everyone, the Marathon Family Health Team and North of Superior Healthcare Group will be unable to accurately track or report COVID-19 cases in our communities. Therefore, our local COVID-19 dashboard reporting will look different moving forward (see below).

We will continue to report new positive cases that are identified through the COVID-19 Assessment Centre periodically, but it should be noted that the number of cases reported will significantly underestimate the true number of people with COVID-19 in our communities. For this reason, reported case numbers should only be used as a signal that COVID-19 (Omicron variant) is in our communities.

To help us more accurately track the number of new positive cases of COVID-19 in our communities, we ask that individuals who test positive on a rapid antigen test (RAT) or any other rapid testing mechanism contact the Assessment Centre by emailing covid@mfht.org. Please write “Positive RAT” in the subject line and include your name and community in the email. Providing us with this information will allow us to report positive cases confirmed by PCR tests and RATs locally.

As of January 7th, 2022, the following dashboard will be used to report new positive cases:

Contact tracing and self-isolation

All patients who have tested positive for the virus have been contacted by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) and are self-isolating at home to prevent further spread of the virus.

The TBDHU is completing very thorough contact tracing and will contact those who are considered high risk contacts of the individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. To help with the contact tracing process, consider downloading the COVID Alert app.
