COVID-19 exposures on the rails, in the air

The coronavirus responsible for the pandemic hitched another ride on the Polar Bear Express last Thursday.  That same morning, it also stowed away on a flight from Timmins to Moosonee… then on a connecting flight to Attawapiskat (ATT-ah-WAW-piss-kat).

The Porcupine Health Unit says someone infected with it was on the train that left Cochrane last Friday morning at nine o’clock.

If you were in Car 2 on the train from Cochrane to Moosonee or on those flights… and live in a First Nation, Inuit or Métis community… or in Moosonee… you should stay home for ten days – that’s even if you’re vaccinated.  You should also arrange for a COVID-19 test, especially if you develop symptoms.

Everyone else on the train or plane is advised to contact the health unit for next steps at this web address.
