Cases of COVID-19 in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties

Cases of COVID-19 are in self-isolation, and are being monitored by health authorities. Case counts listed below are based on lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in residents of Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. Data is extracted from the province’s Integrated Public Health Information System (IPHIS) for cases reported up to Aug 12, 2020 and from the COVID-19 Case and Contact Management (CCM) system from Aug 13, 2020 onward. Every effort will be made to update this dashboard Monday-Friday by 11:00 am (excluding statutory holidays).

Local data is continuously shifting to reflect changes from CCM case information for our region, and to reflect the ongoing review of data quality. As such, information presented in this dashboard may differ from what has been displayed in previous reports. Each daily report represents the most up to date information available, and replaces all previously reported statistics. When differences arise between information in this dashboard and provincially released data about cases in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, this dashboard takes precedence. Provincial reporting may incorrectly attribute some positive COVID-19 cases to Hastings and Prince Edward Counties that are associated with former residents who have not updated their addresses with the province.
