COVID-19 Online Screening – Stop the Spread

Identifying and isolating people infected with COVID-19 is the only way to stop the spread.

The symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough or other cold or influenza-like symptoms. Use this online screening tool to determine whether you need to call 811 to get tested.

If you are awaiting COVID-19 test results, please do not call Health Link. You will be called directly. It can take up to four days.

NOTE: You do not need to be tested for COVID-19 if in the past 14 days you have not travelled outside Canada or have not had contact with someone diagnosed as having COVID-19.

Contact Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000, your local public health unit or your primary care provider if you’re experiencing symptoms of the 2019 novel coronavirus.

Please do not visit an assessment centre unless you have been referred by a health care professional.

Do not call 911 unless it is an emergency.

Status of cases in Ontario

Ontario is now providing a more detailed summary of COVID-19 cases in the province that will be updated each day at 10:30 a.m.

This daily epidemiologic summary replaces the information on the status of COVID-19 cases that was previously provided twice daily on this page. The new summary provides more provincial and regional data on confirmed cases, demographics and trends of cases since the outbreak began including geography, exposure and severity. 

The daily summary is based on data reported by the 32 public health units across Ontario and recorded in the province’s integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS). iPHIS is the Ministry of Health’s disease reporting system where data is regularly updated. Data for each day’s summary will be pulled from iPHIS at 4:00 p.m. the previous day and from the Toronto Public Health Coronavirus Rapid Entry System (CORES) and the Ottawa Public Health COVID-19 Ottawa Database (COD) as of 2:00 p.m. the previous day.

1Number of confirmed cases reported to date in iPHIS by Ontario’s 32 Public Health Units (PHUs) by Toronto Public Health in the Coronavirus Rapid Entry System (CORES) and by Ottawa Public Health in The COVID-19 Ottawa Database (The COD), including resolved and deceased cases.  PHUs may publicly report on cases prior to updating the data in iPHIS. In the event of a discrepancy between iPHIS cases and cases publicly reported by PHUs, data reported by PHUs should be considered the most up to date.
2Cases that are 14 days past symptom onset (if available) or 14 days past the episode date are classified as resolved for non-fatal cases that are not currently listed as hospitalized. Cases are also classified as resolved if the case is reported as “recovered” in iPHIS.
3Includes cases that reported “Yes” to the risk factor “Resident of nursing home or other chronic care facility” and reported to be part of an outbreak assigned as a long-term care home; or were reported to be part of an outbreak assigned as a long-term care home with an age >70 years and did not report ”No” to the risk factor “Resident of nursing home or other chronic care facility”
4Excludes 25 cases that reported "Yes" to both risk factors: "Resident of nursing home or other chronic care facility" and, "health care worker"
5There is a lag between when cases are reported and when risk factors are updated
6Health care worker" includes cases that reported "Yes" to any of the occupations health care worker, doctor, nurse; and reported to be part of an outbreak assigned as a long-term care home
7Deaths are determined by using the outcome field in iPHIS, CORES, CCMtool or The COD. Any case marked "Fatal" is included in the deaths data. Deaths are included whether or not COVID-19 was determined to be a contributing or underlying cause of death as indicated in the iPHIS field "Type of Death".
8Total number of tests completed by the COVID-19 Clinical Lab network (including PHO, hospital and community laboratories). This number represents total tests and not persons tested.
9The numbers reflect volumes processed during the 24-hour period from 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. the previous day.
10Samples with testing in progress.
11Data is self-reported by the hospitals to the Ministry of Health and may not match the numbers posted by local public health units. The values represent the total number of patients hospitalized regardless of where in the hospital they are located, including patients hospitalized within the ICU. The hospitals’ midnight census data are reported and are subject to periodic revision by the hospitals. Data shown is as of May 19, 2020. 
12ICU data include patients in levels 2 and 3 flex, neonatal, pediatric, and adult ICU beds. The reported numbers reflect the previous day’s values. As patients begin to be transferred between units (eg; from lower level of care to a higher level of care), it has become apparent that the previous methods of identifying patients based on a 24-hour time period would count patients transferred between different locations twice; once in each location they were at during the course of the day. In order to eliminate this issue, patients will no longer be counted over a 24 hour period, but will be counted at a single point in time (11:59 pm) to ensure that each person is only counted once.
13MLTC data is as of 3:30 p.m., May 20 and the iPHIS data from 4 p.m. May 20.
14Reports fewer than five are indicated with <5 to maintain the privacy of individuals.
15Data is self-reported by the long-term care homes (the homes) to the Ministry of Long-Term Care (MLTC). Daily case and death figures may not immediately match the numbers posted by the local public health units (i.e. iPHIS database) due to lags in reporting time. 
16The iPHIS data includes all outbreak-related cases and deaths reported in aggregate outbreak summary counts, regardless of whether the case was laboratory confirmed. Deaths among non-laboratory confirmed cases reported are not included in the cumulative Ontario deaths reported.

Note: 173 cases did not specify male or female. 13 cases had an unknown age.

  • There are 24,187 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario reported to date. This represents an increase of 413 confirmed cases from the previous report. 
    • 42.5% of cases are male, 56.8% are female. 
    • 42.0% of cases are 60 years of age and older. 
    • Greater Toronto Area public health units account for 63.6% of cases. 
    • 12.8% of cases were hospitalized. 
  • 1,993 deaths have been reported (please note there may be a reporting delay for deaths). This is an increase of 31 deaths from the previous report. 
  • 287 outbreaks have been reported in long-term care homes. This is an increase of 3 outbreaks from the previous report

How Ontario is responding

Ontario is working with its partners in the health care system implementing a robust plan to monitor for, detect and, if needed, isolate any cases of the 2019 novel coronavirus. The Ministry of Health is taking several steps to ensure the health and safety of Ontarians. This includes:

  • enacting a declaration of emergency to help stop the spread and keep people safe
  • monitoring hospitals for potential cases of the virus in individuals with travel history to areas under a travel health advisory for COVID-19
  • adding the 2019 novel coronavirus as a designated disease reportable under Ontario's public health legislation, enabling local public health units to quickly and effectively take all necessary measures to investigate, complete lab tests and do case and contact management to prevent and control further spread of the infection
  • ongoing planning with federal and provincial/territorial partners and readiness to coordinate with other provinces/territories
  • through the work of the Command Table, refining and finalizing plans for the implementation of enhanced measures to ensure the province continues to be prepared to respond quickly and effectively to any scenario, including:

Laboratory testing

Testing is being conducted at many laboratories across the province, in coordination with the Public Health Ontario Laboratory and the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg.
