In May 2021, the government of Ontario released its Roadmap to Reopen, a three-step plan to safely and cautiously reopen the province and gradually lift public health measures based on the provincewide vaccination rate and improvements in key public health and health care indicators.

As of July 16, 2021, Ontario is in Step 3 of the roadmap.

The Simcoe Muskoka COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard includes domains and several key indicators along with our current COVID-19 vaccination rate to communicate a snapshot of the local experience with COVID-19 and our current status within the provincial 3-step reopening process. Thresholds for the domains and indicators (excluding the vaccination indicator) are specific to Simcoe Muskoka and are based on our local experience with COVID-19.

Provincial thresholds for the vaccination indicator are as follows:

  • Step 1: 60 per cent of adults vaccinated with one dose (Target met in Simcoe Muskoka on May 21, 2021).
  • Step 2: 70 per cent of adults vaccinated with one dose and 20 per cent vaccinated with two doses (Target met in Simcoe Muskoka on June 21, 2021).
  • Step 3: 70 to 80 per cent of adults vaccinated with one dose and 25 per cent vaccinated with two doses (Target met in Simcoe Muskoka on June 24, 2021).
  • Post Step 3: 80 per cent of the population 12 years and older with one dose and 75 per cent vaccinated with two doses (Target met in Simcoe Muskoka on August 31, 2021).
  • The current provincial target is 90 per cent of the population 12 years and older vaccinated with two doses.

This Monitoring 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.
