COVID-19 in York Region

Temporary Impact to Data

In June 2020, the Ontario Ministry of Health announced they would be launching a Public Health Case and Contact Management system that will replace the integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS) for documentation and reporting of COVID-19 cases and contacts. This new system will streamline COVID-19 response functions through improved system workflows for COVID-19 case and contact documentation and data management to effectively monitor COVID-19 activity within York Region.

Interactive Dashboard

Data quality is an on-going process to ensure the data presented by York Region Public Health is accurate, high quality and shows how COVID-19 is evolving in York Region. These necessary data quality activities may result in changes to the total number of cases reported on a day-to-day basis in the interactive graph below.

These changes are normal, expected and part of all infectious disease reporting and surveillance activities. The data we report on a daily basis is based on the most up-to-date information we have from our case, contact and outbreak management activities. York Region Public Health continues to be a leader across the province in the volume and depth of COVID-19-related data made publically available.

Previous daily updates dating from April 9, 2020 to May 22, 2020 are available in Resources.

Public Notices

When is a Public Notice issued?

When York Region Public Health conducts case and contact tracing activities, we may learn of a situation where a case or their contact(s) were working while symptomatic. When Public Health becomes aware of these potential public exposures, a thorough risk assessment is conducted to determine whether or not the general public is at risk of developing COVID-19.

Our risk assessment takes into consideration:

  • Public health measures in place at the business, while the ill staff member was working, including physical distancing, use of personal protective equipment including masks
  • The nature of the employee’s work and the extent and length of time they interact with the general public
  • How long the employee was at work while infectious
  • If there is more than one confirmed case of COVID-19 among employees working at the essential service business

In the event that public health is unable to identify all close contacts, York Region Public Health may issue a public notification providing the public with information about the dates and times of the exposure and any actions to be taken by exposed individuals . This may include the need for self-isolation, and in the event that COVID-19 symptoms develop, direction regarding the need for medical assessment and testing.

Where the risk assessment determines there is no elevated risk to the general public of contracting COVID-19 or when all close contacts can be identified through the interview process with the case, a notice will not be posted.
