COVID-19 by the numbers in northeastern Ontario — vaccinations and cases in our area

An updated file on the COVID-19 vaccination rollout and case counts in northeastern Ontario.

As of Jan. 24, 2022, this file is no longer being updated.

Note: On Dec. 30, 2021, the Ontario Government announced updated elibility for PCR testing. Symptomatic testing is now only available for high-risk individuals or for people who work in high-risk settings. Testing for asymptomatic contacts of cases is no longer being offered, expect for those recommended by public health. A positive rapid antigen test no longer requires PCR test confirmation. To date, there is no provincial system in place to report positive rapid antigen tests. The data reported by health units is based on PCR test results only.
