Muskoka is seeing its first case of COVID-19 in a week.
The latest case is in a Huntsville woman over the age of 80 with the cause still under investigation.
That puts the total case count for the District of Muskoka to 83, with 79 recoveries, 1 hospitalization, 1 death and two cases classified as ‘other’.
According to the Health Unit, ‘other’ essentially means the cases in question were lost during follow-up – meaning the cases in question cannot currently be located by the Health Unit.
This also includes any cases that were investigated by the health unit but left Ontario before a final status was obtained.
The latest case count update also shows Simcoe-Muskoka has surpassed 1600 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with a total of 1604.
1,378 of those cases are recovered, 8 are in hospital, 50 have passed away and 168 are being classified as ‘other’.
