News Hey, look! We’re in a yellow zone now! SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Monday, Mar. 22nd, 2021 (Ontario Ministry of Health) We begin the final week of March in a yellow-protect zone designation among the province’s COVID-19 protocols. The Porcupine Health Unit region was granted permission on Friday to move up a level from orange-restrict. It took effect at 12:01am today. For what it means and how yellow restrictions are looser than orange, we have a link right here. The health unit had no new cases of the virus to report over the weekend or on Monday. We stay at 346 so far.
