Northwest sees strong declines in case counts in a number of communities from weekly COVID report

Local Health Authority COVID review by region 
for December 5-11

While the focus for Health Officials of the last few days has been a watchful eye on reports of the growth for the Omicron variant of COVID-19, including travel advice for the holidays from both the provincial and Federal governments.

When it comes to the review of Covid case report data for the Northwest for the last week, the results are somewhat encouraging from those recorded just a few weeks ago. 

That as a number of communities show a strong decline in the reported case counts of the last seven days.  

Terrace leads the pack with just 26 cases recorded this week more than a fifty percent drop from the returns of last week.

Likewise, Kitimat saw a significant reduction, while most other communities held to the levels of last week or saw slight decreases from them.

Prince Rupert was among those, holding steady at eight cases recorded for the week of December 5 to 11.
