As always, reporters and photographers were out this past week capturing all the goings-on in the region.

Despite the restrictions in place to slow the spread of COVID-19, photographers are still out and about, keeping an eye on what's happening in the region.

This week, we heard from a family who had been fighting their insurance company over a $220,000 medical bill, spoke to a woman who fears a second wave of COVID-19 could shutter the pools she relies on to maintain her muscle strength, and reported on two men who disappeared into the water of the Ottawa River while fishing.

Here are some of the best CBC Ottawa, Radio-Canada and Canadian Press photos from the past seven days.
