List of Confirmed COVID-19 Cases in Simcoe Muskoka

The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit currently has 71 confirmed cases of COVID-19 including 20 recovered, 11 hospitalizations and 4 deaths. Changes from the previous reporting day include 5 new cases, 4 in self-isolation and 1 in hospital. Three additional cases have now recovered. There is an outbreak at a long-term care facility in our area, see the list of current institutional outbreaks for more details.

We have evidence of community transmission of COVID-19 in our region which means the virus is spreading in the community and is not linked to travel or a previously known case. Community transmission means that we expect the number of cases will start to rise over the next days and weeks. Due to this, public health in unable to monitor how the virus is spreading from person to person and this makes it more difficult to slow its spread. This is not just a disease affecting the elderly, most of our cases are among adults between 35 and 64 years of age. This makes it even more important that people protect themselves and others by staying home and assuming that you and everyone around you may be carrying the virus. If we all do this, as well as continue to maintain physical distance of 2 metres from others and wash our hands frequently, we will be putting less people at risk and can flatten the curve.

Anyone who has new cold-like/respiratory symptoms (regardless of travel history), and has not been tested for COVID-19, is to self-isolate at home for 14 days.

Details on all confirmed cases within Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka are listed below. There are also tables of the number of confirmed cases in Simcoe Muskoka, broken down by: age group, status and source of infection. Finally, there is a graph that displays the number of confirmed cases in Simcoe Muskoka by date of symptom onset.

Protect yourself and others

  1. Stay home
    • Avoid all non-essential trips into your community.
  2. Practise physical distancing
    • Physical distancing means keeping two (2) meters or 6 feet between you and another person.
    • Everyone should practise physical distancing to reduce their exposure to other people.
    • Everyone should do their best to avoid close contact with people outside of their immediate families.
  3. Practise proper hygiene
    • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 15 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Sneeze and cough into your sleeve.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

If you believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 symptoms, you should begin to self-monitor for a period of 14 days. This means that, in addition to physical distancing, you should track how you feel. You should take your temperature daily and log any other symptoms that develop (for example, sore throat, new cough or difficulty breathing). You can share these records with your primary care provider over the phone if you seek assessment services.
