  • 404 new cases were reported in Ontario today, bringing the cumulative case count to 28,263 (this includes 22,153 resolved cases and 2,276 deaths).
  • In Ontario, a total of 732,720 tests have been completed, with tests performed at Public Health Ontario Laboratories and non-Public Health Laboratories. There are currently 6,427 tests under investigation.
  • 781 patients are currently hospitalized with COVID-19; 125 are in ICU; and 89 are in ICU on a ventilator.

Actions Taken:

  • Guidance for Congregate Living for Vulnerable Populations has been posted on the ministry’s website.
  • A new guidance document has been developed to support summer day camps that will operate during the months of July and August 2020. The document in English and French will be posted on the Ministry’s website in the coming days.
  • The Ontario government announced that it has enacted a new regulatory amendment that will put non-unionized employees on Infectious Disease Emergency Leave during the COVID-19 outbreak any time their hours of work are temporarily reduced by their employer due to COVID-19. This will ensure businesses aren’t forced to terminate employees after their ESA temporary layoff periods have expired.
  • Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health, and Dr. Barbara Yaffe, Associate Chief Medical Officer of Health, will now hold bi-weekly media briefings to provide an update on the province’s ongoing response to COVID-19.
  • The Command Table met on May 22, May 25 and May 29; summaries of the discussions are attached.
