The Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) will be changing the frequency of its online COVID-19 Dashboard beginning on December 1st. While the dashboard is currently updated daily, it will shift to a Monday to Friday schedule; except where statutory holidays fall mid-week. This weekend, November 27th and 28th, will be the final weekend that the Health Unit reports updated COVID-19 case data on Saturday and Sunday.
Once the new schedule is in place, the Health Unit will include a breakdown of COVID-19 cases and deaths reported over the weekend, when its dashboard is updated the following Monday. Data that comes in over the weekend will not be available until Monday. As a result, the Health Unit will not be able to respond to specific media inquiries about COVID-19 cases and deaths associated with COVID-19 on the weekend, but will continue to provide urgent updates, as necessary.
In addition to the move to a five-day-a-week schedule, the MLHU’s COVID-19 dashboard will not be updated on December 25th and 26th or on January 1st and 2nd. Monday to Friday reporting will continue to occur over the Holiday season and into the new year.
