The Province of Ontario provides a detailed summary of COVID-19 cases in the province that is updated each day at 10:30 a.m.

The data these maps illustrate are intended to help public health deliver COVID-19 prevention strategies to people living in parts of the city most affected by virus spread. It is important to remember COVID-19 is circulating in all parts of Toronto and everyone should follow public health advice to reduce the spread of this virus.

These maps illustrate the distribution of COVID-19 testing and the results of those tests, in Toronto residents, as suggested by an individual’s postal code.

These maps should not be used as an indicator of the risk of acquiring COVID-19, where cases were exposed to the disease, or the location where they were tested. It is possible to become infected with COVID-19 anywhere. That is why it is important to practice hand hygiene, wear masks, keep a distance of six feet, and avoid large gatherings.

Case maps include cases from outbreaks. These can be removed by using the filter on the map (remove the outbreak associated cases). Testing maps include all individuals tested for COVID-19 who have a valid postal code. When using the maps below, hover over the neighbourhoods to view numbers (counts) and other relevant information. Learn more about Toronto neighbourhoods, including what neighbourhood you live in.

Please note that the data shown here may differ from other sources, as data are extracted at different times. The data in the maps 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.

This information is updated three times per week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, except on statutory holidays. Testing information is updated once a week, on Wednesday.

Indicators for Toronto’s COVID-19 monitoring strategy are consistent with those included in the provincial Framework for Reopening our Province and are organized in the following four categories:

  1. Virus Spread and Containment: COVID-19 cases, outbreaks in institutions, and community-acquired COVID-19 cases in Toronto.
  2. Laboratory Testing: Laboratory tests completed for Toronto residents per day, the percentage of tests that are positive, and the average turnaround time for a test to be completed.
  3. Health Care System Capacity: Available bed capacity and current status of available personal protective equipment in Toronto hospitals.
  4. Public Health: Percentage of cases reached and contacts where public health follow-up was initiated within 24 hours.

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.

This information is updated three times per week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, except on statutory holidays.

COVID-19 reported infection in Toronto: Ethno-racial identity and income

Our risk of illness is linked to how and where we live, work, and play. There is growing evidence that racialized populations and low income groups are more at risk of COVID-19. The reasons for this are unclear but could include:

  • Existing health disparities linked to social and economic factors
  • Stress caused by racism and other forms of discrimination
  • Challenges in participating in the public health response to COVID-19, including
    • difficulties in limiting COVID-19 exposure because of being an essential worker, and
    • difficulties in physical distancing because of overcrowding
  • Inequitable access to health care and social services

Toronto Public Health (TPH) started collecting data on Indigenous identity, racial group, income, and household size on May 20, 2020. These data will be analyzed and summaries will be posted here monthly.

The data are used by TPH and partner organizations to reduce inequities in how COVID-19 infection is affecting the population. This work includes

  • Consulting and collaborating with community agencies that serve groups of people who are over-represented in COVID-19 infection rates
  • Focused health promotion messaging
  • Recommending areas for focused testing
  • Increasing opportunities for isolation for those unable to safely do so at home
  • Continuing to bring attention to the social determinants of health and how other levels of government can address them
  • Longer-term planning and advocacy for a more equitable system of health and social services

Area-based analysis also shows that ethno-racial group and income are associated with reported COVID-19 infection.
