SUDBURY -- The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit has confirmed a member of the École Secondaire Catholique Franco-Cité school community in Sturgeon Falls has tested positive for COVID-19.
"The health unit is working with Conseil scolaire catholique Franco-Nord to ensure that all close contacts are contacted directly," the health unit said in a news release Tuesday.
