  • 361 new cases were reported today in Ontario, bringing the cumulative total to 20,907 (this includes 15,391 resolved cases and 1,725 deaths).
  • In Ontario, a total of 459,921 tests have been completed, with tests performed at Public Health Ontario Laboratories and non-Public Health Laboratories. There are currently 10,811 tests under investigation.
  • 1,025 patients are currently hospitalized with COVID-19; 192 are in ICU; and 146 are in ICU on a ventilator.

 Actions Taken :

  • An updated case definition and reference document for symptoms have been posted on the Ministry’s website in English and French. The updated case definition includes consideration for travel within Canada (as well as international travel), and includes updates to the ‘probable’ case definition to include people who were living/working in a facility known to be experiencing an outbreak. The updated symptoms list now includes multisystem inflammatory vasculitis in children. Other guidance documents are currently being updated to align with these changes.
  • The Ontario government extended the Declaration of Emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act until June 2, 2020. Further information can be found here.
  • A memo was sent today to Public Health Units communicating an emergency order authorizing coroners and Public Health Units to access to the provincial Electronic Health Record (EHR) to help in the response to COVID-19. This memo is attached.
