COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard

This page is updated Tuesday to Friday by 1 p.m. EST.

The government of Ontario launched a new COVID-19 response framework on November 7, 2020, which includes regional health measures and sector-specific public health and workplace safety measures. This framework provides a baseline for public health measures based on five colour-coded levels but municipalities and local Medical Officers of Health can implement additional regional restrictions or requirements if needed, based on the local situation.

The Simcoe Muskoka COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard is distinct from the provincial framework; however, there are several similar indicators used by both. The domains and indicators selected for the Simcoe Muskoka COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard are based on the provincial Framework for Reopening our Province and reflect our local public health assessment. Thresholds for the domains and indicators are specific to Simcoe Muskoka and are based on our local experience with COVID-19. This dashboard uses a three colour-coded system to communicate the state of the pandemic in Simcoe Muskoka.

The dashboard presents indicators across these four domains:

  1. Virus Spread and Containment
  2. Laboratory Testing
  3. Health System Capacity and
  4. Public Health System Capacity.

Domain-level scores are reviewed as the data are updated to provide an overall status assessment of COVID-19 in Simcoe County and Muskoka District.
