Simcoe Muskoka moves to Red - Control Stage - Dec 11/20

In consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, local medical officers of health, and other health experts, the government is moving seven public health unit regions to new levels with stronger public health measures, including Windsor-Essex County Health Unit and York Region Public Health moving into Grey-Lockdown.

These steps are being taken to stop the spread of COVID-19 in order to keep schools open in the regions where in-class learning is permitted, safeguard health system capacity, and protect the province's most vulnerable populations.

The regional levels and specific public health measures are set out in the Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Framework.

All other public health regions will remain at their current level.
