Outbreaks of COVID-19 and potential exposure risks

This section is updated when information is available. Public Health reports all outbreaks in schools, long-term care homes, and retirement homes. We also report community outbreaks or possible exposures for which Public Health is unable to contact everyone directly to advise them of their potential exposure to COVID-19. Information in this section will be removed one week after an outbreak is declared over.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ detailed epidemiology summary (PDF, 1 MB) provides data on COVID-19 activity in our service area. It includes information about cases over time, case characteristics, probable exposures, case outcomes, testing, and outbreaks in facilities.
