On August 12, it will be in Fort Coulonge from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on August 17, it will make its way to Otter Lake between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. 

Regional active figures moved up slightly as the Outaouais had 11 active cases (12,597 total, 12,371 recovered) as of August 2, 2021, up one from July 26.
