MPP Norm Miller has spoken about recent news about the district Health Unit. On Tuesday, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit announced that they will no longer exist as of April 1st, 2020. The MPP spoke to a reporter from The Bay on the issue, and he says that the effort comes down to making healthcare more efficient across the provice, by reducing Ontario's health units from 35 to 10. He says that modernizing and improving the system will help the health units better respond to regional needs and outbreaks. There is currently no information on a timeline, or what health unit Muskoka's will be folded into.
