kawarthaNOW is providing a daily report of COVID-19 cases in the greater Kawarthas region.
This report is based on data supplied by the region’s three public health units, as retrieved by province’s integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS). This information is at least 24 hours old, so it is not real-time data.
We update each daily report throughout the day to reflect the most current information available (usually by mid-afternoon). Note that each health unit reports the information in a different way.
