Interactive Dashboard - Cases

This is an interactive dashboard that provides an in-depth summary of data on COVID-19 cases in York Region. Enhanced capabilities within the dashboard allow users to easily view total case numbers, where the virus was acquired, status of cases and detailed information relative to York Region’s nine cities and towns. Users can interact with the dashboard to view detailed insights into COVID-19 cases in York Region.



*Cases in this dataset are reported based on the Accurate Episode Date (displayed as episode date in graphs). This is a calculated field used when extracting data from iPHIS. The field uses a number of dates entered in iPHIS to provide an approximation of onset date

Case definitions:

Close contact - Close contact can result from: providing care for a positive case (e.g., healthcare workers, family members or other caregivers), living with a case, or having similar close physical, or prolonged face-to-face contact with a positive case while the case was ill
Local transmission – Individuals who did not have close contact with a travel-related case or any known case of COVID-19
Hospitalized - Admitted to the hospital
Self-isolating - Separating yourself, avoiding contact with other people and staying home (e.g., not attending work, school)
Travel - Case is a result of travel outside of Canada
Resolved - Patient is no longer infectious based on no longer having a fever and their symptoms have been resolved for 14 days since original onset date. Two consecutive negative tests performed at Public Health Ontario Laboratory at least 24 hours apart are required for healthcare workers or individuals hospitalized to confirm classification as “resolved”
Under investigation - As this case has been newly reported to public health, the investigation is ongoing

Symptoms, treatment and transmission

Symptoms

Symptoms of COVID-19 range from mild - like the flu and other common respiratory infections - to severe, and can include the following:

  • Fever
  • New or worsening cough
  • New or worsening shortness of breath
  • Other symptoms may include: muscle aches, fatigue, headache, sore throat, runny nose. Symptoms in young children may also be non-specific (for example, lethargy, poor feeding)

Complications from COVID-19 can include serious conditions, like pneumonia, and in some cases, death.

Your risk of severe disease may be higher if you have a weakened immune system. This may be the case for:

  • People over 70 years of age
  • People with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, heart, renal or chronic lung disease
Consider discussing plans for serious illness and end-of-life care options with your family members. Planning for serious illness includes being able to answer, how important it is for you to receive medical treatments that focus on prolonging your life versus maintaining the quality of your remaining life. While this can be a difficult discussion to have, making these decisions in advance and communicating them to your family and primary health care provider can ensure that your wishes are carried out appropriately. For more information, please see this resource from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Treatment

Most people with COVID-19 will recover on their own without specific treatments, (which is the case for many viral illnesses like the common cold and flu). To date, there is no vaccine that protects against coronaviruses.

How COVID-19 Spreads (Transmission)

At this time, much of the evidence suggests that COVID-19 is mainly spread via person-to-person spread which is:

  • Between people who are in close contact with each other (less than 2 metres)
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths, eyes or noses of people who are nearby or can possibly be inhaled into the lungs

Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects may be possible. This would occur when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touches their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes with unwashed hands. Virus droplets may remain infectious for several hours on surfaces, depending on where they fall. Viruses generally remain active longer on stainless steel, plastic and similar hard surfaces than on fabric and other soft surfaces. Other factors, such as the amount of virus deposited on a surface and the temperature and humidity of the environment, also determine how long viruses stay active outside the body. Contact spread is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. Proper hand hygiene and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces will eliminate this theoretical method of spread.

COVID-19 is not transmitted through the airborne route. The virus is also not known to spread through ventilation systems or through water.

For more information about how COVID-19 spreads, please see this resource on Droplet vs Airborne transmission and appropriate mask use.

Testing

York Region Public Health does not provide testing for COVID-19.

Testing is not required if you do not have symptoms of COVID-19. 

If you have any symptoms of COVID 19 including fever, new or worsening cough, new or worsening shortness of breath, muscle aches, fatigue, headache, sore throat or runny nose:

  1. Return home immediately and self-isolate for 14 days
  2. Contact your primary health care provider, York Region Public Health at 1-800-361-5653 or Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000
  3. If advised, visit a COVID-19  Assessment Centre for testing: 
  4. Get in touch with anyone you have been in close contact with two days before you had symptoms and while you had symptoms and ask them to immediately self-isolate for 14 days

Assessment (and testing) is prioritized for the following people:

  • Symptomatic health care workers (regardless of care delivery setting) and staff who work in health care facilities
  • Symptomatic residents and staff in Long-Term Care and Retirement Homes
  • Hospitalized patients admitted with respiratory symptoms (new or exacerbated)
  • Symptomatic members of remote, isolated, rural and/or Indigenous communities
  • Symptomatic travelers identified at a point of entry to Canada
  • Symptomatic individuals who work in child care settings or live/work in shelters, group homes, or other settings with vulnerable individuals (e.g., those with weakened immune systems, older adults, those with underlying health conditions etc.)
If you have already been tested, you must remain in self-isolation for 14 days after your symptoms started. If you have travelled outside of Canada you must remain in self-isolation for the full 14 days, even if test results are negative.

If you were tested at a York Region Emergency Department or a COVID-19 Assessment Centre, test results will be available in approximately 10 days and York Region Public Health will call you to inform you about your results or you can check your test results online.

If you were tested by your health care provider or a medical clinic, the attending physician who carried out the test will provide you with results.

Check your COVID-19 test results online

The Ontario government has launched a new user-friendly online portal so you can access your COVID-19 lab test results. This offers fast and secure access to test results on your computer or mobile device. Please note- this tool does not work with Internet Explorer of iOS 11 and older.

Contact tracing and how it helps Public Health

Contact tracing is public health’s most effective tool to slow the spread of COVID-19. It has helped successfully control the spread of COVID-19 in many other parts of the world, including South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore. Contact tracing provides a barrier between those who are infected and their close contacts; interrupting the spread of disease between an infected person and the ring of close contacts around them.

Close contacts include people you live with, have had intimate relationships with, people who have cared for you or you have cared for (for example, with bathing, feeding or dressing), people that you have visited with, spent time with at work, or have come to your home.

How you can help Public Health with Contact Tracing

If you have been told by a healthcare provider that you have COVID-19 (tested positive) or likely have it (whether or not you have been tested or are waiting for results):

  • Contact everyone you have been in close contact with during the following time period:  two days before your symptoms started until when you started self-isolating
  • Request those that identify with you as close contacts to self-isolate for 14 days since they last interacted with you
  • Contact those in your ring of close contacts that regularly interact with anyone over the age of 70 or individuals who are immunocompromised right away

If you are still going to work every day (e.g., essential worker):

  • Track your daily whereabouts in a journal, including where you went and who you interacted with
  • Carefully monitor your health for any signs and symptoms of illness and immediately self-isolate for 14 days if you start developing any symptoms

Pay very close attention to physical distancing at all times. This means keeping 2 metres from other people.

Emergency Child Care

Emergency Child Care for health care and other front-line workers

Emergency child care services are reserved exclusively for children from birth to age 12 of eligible health care and front-line workers, as identified by the Ministry of Education, who have no other alternatives.

The safest option for any family is to have children remain at home, if at all possible.

Spaces are limited in order to protect the health and well-being of children, families and child care professionals. While the child care provider will do their best to provide a safe environment for your child(ren), it is important that parents and guardians understand there are risks associated with placing your child(ren) in child care.

Emergency child care services are provided at no cost to families and are funded by the Province of Ontario.

Who can apply

Emergency child care is intended for eligible workers who currently have no other child care options.

Only workers identified in the Ministry of Education’s list of workers eligible for emergency child care can use emergency child care services.

Due to the number of spaces, York Region will commit to child care spaces for eligible families on a first-come, first-served basis. If the level of demand exceeds capacity, York Region will prioritize child care space for front-line health care workers (including York Region Public Health and Long-Term Care workers) and first responders.

How to apply

Emergency child care services are reserved exclusively for children of eligible health care and front-line workers who have no other alternatives. If you are eligible, please apply for emergency child care using the online application form:

After submitting your online application, you will need to provide proof of eligible health care and front-line worker status.

As part of the intake process, a York Region children’s services representative will contact you to:

  1. Confirm eligibility and proof of eligible health care and front-line worker status, including that there is no alternative care available
  2. Discuss child care needs such as the number of children requiring child care, their ages and any special needs
  3. Outline next steps in identifying a child care centre for your child(ren)

Locations of emergency child care centres in York Region

There is no way to guarantee COVID-19 or other respiratory infections can be avoided.

Spaces are limited and strict measures are in place to protect the safety of the children and staff at these centres as much as possible, including thorough daily cleaning, active screening and limiting the number of children in any one centre low.

All child care centres are required to follow existing health and safety requirements and have a plan in place should any children, parents or staff be exposed to COVID-19.

Centres do not offer child care 24-hours a day, however, most centres offer extended hours.

Child care centres are located close to the three regional hospitals in York Region: Markham Stouffville Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre and Mackenzie Health (Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital).

Child care centres located in close proximity to Mackenzie Health and Southlake Regional Health Centre are expected to be ready to take children the week of April 6. Additional locations, including a child care centre close to Markham Stouffville Hospital, will be announced as they are confirmed.

Please note:

  • The safest option for your family is to have children remain at home, if at all possible
  • While the child care operator will do their best to provide a safe environment for your child (ren), it is important that parents and guardians understand there are risks associated with placing your child(ren) in the child care
  • Due to limited space in order to maintain provincial health and safety requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, York Region will commit to child care spaces for eligible families on a first-come, first-served basis
  • If the level of demand exceeds the ability to provide care, York Region will prioritize child care space for front-line healthcare workers (including York Region Public Health and Long Term Care workers) and first responders
