Compiled daily reported data on COVID-19 testing and outcomes in Ontario. Blank cells represent values that were not reported.

As of November 12, 2021, routine Variants of Concern (VOC) PCR testing of positive COVID-19 samples is no longer being conducted. All eligible positive COVID-19 samples will now be forwarded for whole genome sequencing. Starting on November 16, 2021, VOC data will not be reported in Status of COVID-19 cases in Ontario.

Data on VOC can be found on Public Health Ontario's COVID-19 Variants of Concern (VOCs). Historical data on VOCs and mutations in daily and weekly epidemiological summaries can be found on COVID-19: Epidemiologic summaries from Public Health Ontario

The methodology used to count COVID-19 deaths has changed to exclude deaths not caused by COVID. This impacts data captured in the columns “Deaths”, “Deaths_Data_Cleaning” and “newly_reported_deaths” starting with data for March 11, 2022. A new column has been added to the file “Deaths_New_Methodology” which represents the methodological change.
