Indirect Impacts Dashboard

Results of SMDHU’s 2020 Mitigating Harms of COVID-19 Public Health Measures Situational Assessment highlighted the need for ongoing surveillance of the pandemic on the health and health equity of residents of Simcoe and Muskoka. As such, the health unit identified priority indicators that have been most impacted by the pandemic and that we have monitored over the course of the pandemic.

The Indirect Impacts interactive dashboard (clicking this link will open a new window with the dashboard) presents the identified health status indicators which are organized into eight key domains: basic needs, child and family health, substance use, mental health, immunizations, oral health, infectious disease, and general health.

Data in this dashboard will be updated twice per year. The health unit will monitor the indicators over time to assess changes in health status during pandemic recovery and into the future. The database has been built using local data where possible, and displays indicators for Simcoe Muskoka, Simcoe County, Muskoka District and Ontario.
