THUNDER BAY — The Thunder Bay District Health Unit is taking steps to enhance its ability to enforce self-isolation requirements for people diagnosed with COVID-19.

In a statement Tuesday, the TBDHU said the class order strengthens its opportunity to quickly enforce self-isolation at a time of high case numbers in the Thunder Bay area, and when there are increasing numbers of COVID-19 variants circulating in the province.
