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.
COVID-19 in Ontario Licensed Retirement Homes: Summary of Data
The summary below outlines information based on the data collected up to September 21, 2020.
Please refer to the COVID-19 dashboard for daily updates on active and resolved outbreaks, and staff and resident cases and associated deaths as reported by licensed retirement homes.
There are over 770 licensed retirement homes in Ontario. As of September 21, less than two per cent (1.3%) of Ontario retirement homes report being in an active outbreak. More than 75 per cent (76.39%) of Ontario’s licensed retirement homes have not reported a COVID-19 outbreak. Of the 22 per cent of homes that did report an outbreak, almost all of the outbreaks have since been resolved.
The data shows that since May 10, there has been a decline in active outbreaks reported.
According to the cumulative cases reported, the data shows a flattening of the curve starting in June. The cumulative resident death totals (tracked on a seven-day rolling average) also started to flatten starting in June. Cumulative staff cases in retirement homes also started to flatten in June based on reports; however, the data shows a slight increase in staff cases reported in July and August. There are no reported deaths among staff at licensed retirement homes.
When looking at the active and resolved outbreaks by the five Ontario Health Interim and Transitional Regions, the data shows that the active outbreaks are in the East and West regions. The Toronto region had the highest rate of outbreak of the five regions; however, the outbreaks in this region have now all been resolved.
