RHRA COVID-19 Dashboard

The data presented in the dashboard was obtained through direct inquires by the RHRA and through self-reports by licensed retirement homes to the RHRA, in accordance with retirement homes’ regulatory obligations. We have collected this information to inform our ongoing efforts to support the retirement home community through this difficult time. RHRA thanks the homes for providing this data.

RHRA makes this data available to keep the public, including residents, families, researchers and health care professionals, informed on how the pandemic is affecting licensed retirement homes.

This dashboard is updated daily at 11:00 a.m. from Monday to Friday, except on statutory holidays. The information presented is current as of 5:00 p.m. the previous business day. Active outbreaks may not immediately match the numbers posted by the local public health units due to lags in reporting time.
