UPDATE: Moose Cree First Nation Chief Mervin Cheechoo confirms this one is also in Moose Factory.

We’re starting the week with a report of the 81st case of COVID-19 in the Porcupine Health Unit region.  This one is the third on the James and Hudson Bay coasts.  The first two are in Moose Factory, but we have yet to confirm where the third one is.

The health unit says the person is in their 20s or 30s. It’s not clear how they contracted it.  They are in self-isolation.
