Two men are the latest confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Sudbury and Manitoulin districts.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Penny Sutcliffe, says a fifth case is a man in his 20s while the sixth is a man in his 30ths.

She says both men are close contacts of confirmed cases elsewhere in Ontario.

Dr. Sutcliffe adds they have both been discharged to their respective homes to begin self-isolation.

She stresses everyone has to assume that the virus is circulating locally and everyone is asked to stay home and if it is essential to go out, keep two metres apart as part of the physical distancing protocol
