COVID-19 CASES IN NEYAASHIINIGMIING

ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN HOSPITAL

Please note discrepancies between reports from Public Health Grey Bruce and the Community Health Centre in Neyaashiinigmiing can be explained by multiple reasons:
• The province is providing millions of rapid tests to the public with no mandate to report to health units. Some of these results may or may not be reported to the health unit, the Nawash Community Health Centre or both.
• The daily number of new COVID-19 Cases is no longer a reliable indicator of the real number of cases and level of transmission in communities across Grey Bruce and the province. The Province direction has been to limit the eligibility of testing to high risk settings (hospital, long term care, first responders). This resulted in underestimate of the number of cases in the general public as most cases are not being tested.
• More precise indictors of the level of transmission is the number of hospitalized cases. (Actual cases hospitalized to treat COVID-19.)
• The active cases we (Neyaashiinigmiing) are publishing on our website & Facebook page include both PCR tests & Rapid COVID-19 tests. Grey Bruce County is only publishing positive PCR results.
• The resolved cases will also differ from data published by Public Health Grey Bruce due to the number of individuals isolating in Nawash from positive Rapid COVID-19 test results completed on the reserve.
