  • 287 new cases were reported in Ontario today, bringing the cumulative case count to 26,191 (this includes 19,958 resolved cases and 2,123 deaths).
  • In Ontario, a total of 629,414 tests have been completed, with tests performed at Public Health Ontario Laboratories and non-Public Health Laboratories. There are currently 6,961 tests under investigation.
  • 848 patients are currently hospitalized with COVID-19; 143 are in ICU; and 113 are in ICU on a ventilator.

 Actions Taken:

  • An updated Reference Document for Symptoms has been uploaded to the ministry’s website.
  • The CMOH Directive #2 (issued March 19, 2020) has been amended to reflect the gradual restart of all deferred and non-essential and elective services carried out by health care providers. The revised Directive is attached along with the accompanying document “COVID-19 Operational Requirements: Health Sector Restart”. This document outlines measures that must be in place for the provision of in-person health services by health care providers. Health care providers must also adhere to guidance provided by their applicable health regulatory college. Both documents will be translated and posted on the website in the coming days. The sector is reminded of OH’s framework as per its May 7, 2020 document: A Measured Approach to Planning for Surgeries and Procedures During the COVID-19 Pandemic for hospitals to assess their readiness and begin planning for the gradual resumption of scheduled surgeries and procedures, while maintaining capacity to respond to COVID-19.
