As of April 7, 2021, an outbreak is defined as two or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in residents, staff or other visitors in a home, with an epidemiological link, within a 14-day period, where at least one case could have reasonably acquired their infection in the LTC home. Previously, the definition required one or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in a resident or staff in the long-term care home.
