  • 258 new cases were reported today in Ontario, bringing the cumulative total to 21,494 (this includes 16,204 resolved cases and 1,798 deaths).
  • In Ontario, a total of 492,487 tests have been completed, with tests performed at Public Health Ontario Laboratories and non-Public Health Laboratories. There are currently 17,578 tests under investigation.
  • 1,026 patients are currently hospitalized with COVID-19; 184 are in ICU; and 141 are in ICU on a ventilator.

 Actions Taken :

  • Updated guidance for Acute Care settings has been posted on the ministry’s website.
  • Today, the Ontario government announced the retailers, seasonal businesses and health and community service providers who will be permitted to open or expand their services on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 12:01 a.m., provided that the general trend on health indicators continues to improve as part of the first stage of the government’s reopening framework. The workplaces opening as part this stage are well-positioned to put workplace safety measures in place and get more people back to work, while not overburdening public transit and other services.
  • The testing guidance was updated to expand access to testing for Ontarians who are experiencing symptoms compatible with COVID-19. The symptoms list has also been slightly modified to include myalgia (muscle aches) as an atypical symptom. Both documents are attached and will be available soon on the Ministry’s website.
