As of December 31, 2021, the number of COVID-19 cases being reported is an underestimate of the true number of people with COVID-19 in Toronto due to provincial changes in testing eligibility.

Indicators for Toronto’s COVID-19 monitoring strategy are organized in the following three categories:

  1. Virus Activity: COVID-19 cases, outbreaks in institutions, percent positivity, and wastewater surveillance in Toronto.
  2. Severity: New hospitalizations and ICU admissions, and neighbourhood based inequities related to hospitalization rates.
  3. Vaccination: Third dose vaccination coverage and neighbourhood based inequities related to vaccination rates.

Please note that the data shown in the Toronto COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard may differ from other sources, as data are extracted at different times. The data in the charts are subject to change as the public health investigation into reported cases is currently ongoing. Additionally, data definitions are subject to change as the pandemic evolves.

Toronto Public Health’s COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard is updated bi-weekly on Wednesdays.
