  • 383 new cases were reported in Ontario today, bringing the cumulative case count to 26,866 (this includes 20,673 resolved cases and 2,189 deaths).
  • In Ontario, a total of 662,162 tests have been completed, with tests performed at Public Health Ontario Laboratories and non-Public Health Laboratories. There are currently 11,868 tests under investigation.
  • 833 patients are currently hospitalized with COVID-19; 137 are in ICU; and 94 are in ICU on a ventilator.

 Actions Taken:

  • A new Congregate Living for Vulnerable Populations Guidance Document is attached and will be available in English and French on the Ministry website shortly. This Guidance Document is intended to assist with minimizing COVID-19 transmissions from individuals working or residing in congregate living settings and to help prevent, detect and manage individual cases and outbreaks of COVID-19 within these settings. The new document is aligned with the government’s COVID-19 Action Plan for Vulnerable People, released on April 23, 2020, and replaces the former guidance documents for Group Homes and Co-Living Settings, Guidance for Homeless Shelters, and Guidance for Community-Based Mental Health and Addictions Service Providers in Residential Settings.
  • To further protect seniors and staff in long-term care homes, the Ontario government announced today that it is extending the mandate of the Incident Management System Long-Term Care Table.
