COVID-19 statistics are updated Monday to Friday, excluding weekends and holidays. This is due to the elimination of provincial emergency orders on staff redeployment. Public Health continues to manage COVID-19 and will report data from the weekends on Mondays. As of May 6, vaccination coverage rates have been updated to reflect the 2021 census population.
Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, limited availability of testing, and changes to case and contact management practices, case counts are an underestimate of the true number of individuals in Niagara with COVID-19. Data should be interpreted with caution.
