More than 102 new COVID-19 cases logged in Simcoe Muskoka since Friday

The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) logged more than 100 new COVID-19 cases over the long weekend.

The health unit reports 102 infections since Friday. Of those, 72 are unvaccinated, 15 partially, and 15 fully.


Roughly 72 per cent of Simcoe Muskoka residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as more pop-up clinics offer no-appointment shots.

Anyone born in 2009 or earlier is eligible to get vaccinated.

Last week, the RVH Sperling Drive immunization clinic reported a spike in the number of residents wanting the first dose of a vaccine.

This following the province's announcement that certain indoor businesses would require proof of immunization before entry starting Sept. 22.

Complete information on Ontario's vaccine certificate is available here.

Provincial modelling released recently shows the Delta variant is twice as transmissible and increases the risk of hospitalization and ICU admission.


The SMDHU is opening vaccination clinics in many local schools to help prevent transmission.

The clinics aim to make getting the shot more convenient for students, families, and educators.

School pop-up clinics will begin on Thursday at Barrie North Collegiate Institute after school hours.
