Full List of Extended Restrictions that Remain in Effect in the Porcupine Health Unit 

Effective June 11, 2021 at 12:01 a.m., the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU) will enforce some Shutdown-level restrictions to minimize the person-to-person interactions that are fuelling uncontrolled transmission of COVID-19, including the new delta variant, within our communities.

The PHU anticipates that these continued Shutdown-level restrictions will remain in effect for no longer than the next two weeks until June 25, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. Regular assessment of the region's progress against key pubic health and health system indicators will be made and reported publicly.
