  1. I agree with Lisa. Since numbers in Southern Ontario are on a rise, Northern Ontario should be its own bubble and restrict back and forth travel to essential only. The risk for Northern Ontario has always been cross border travel (keeping the border closed is our saving grace) or travellers from other provinces or especially Southern Ontario. Anything South of Sudbury and North Bay districts should not be allowed to travel North.

  2. So this person was in southern Ontario, came to the sault, so one would imagine it was contracted in southern Ontario, as it takes up to five days to catch virus and show symptoms, so what I get out of this is northern Ontario and southern Ontario should have a closed border, that way we can keep our count low here in the north, and keep things open and our economy running!!!!
