An Ontario health unit is marking a significant milestone in its battle against COVID-19 this week.
Timiskaming Health Unit reported no new or active cases on Friday, becoming the first Ontario health unit in the last 30 days to have zero COVID-19 cases.*
While it is the only health unit to hit this milestone at the moment, other regions aren't that far behind them. As of Friday, Algoma Health Unit and Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District only have five active cases, while Northwestern is reporting eight.
