Where the numbers come from

Cumulative case and death totals (Overview)

The Public Health Case and Contact Management Solution (CCM) is Ontario's primary disease reporting system. All of Ontario’s Public Health Units report covid 19 case data to CCM for their areas, with the exception of Toronto Public Health which enters data into its own Toronto Public Health Coronavirus Rapid Entry System (CORES). Case data in CORES is added to CCM by Public Health Ontario each day.

Total resident and staff case data on this page is taken from:

  • CCM as of 3:00 p.m. the previous day
  • CORES as of 2:00 p.m. the previous day

If there is a discrepancy between numbers reported here and those reported publicly by a Public Health Unit, it is likely because the Public Health Unit hasn’t yet updated their numbers in CCM. In that case, consider the number reported by the Public Health Unit to be the most up to date.

Outbreaks, active cases and deaths

Long-term care homes self-report outbreaks and number of active cases and deaths to the Ministry of Long-Term Care. This information may not immediately match the status and numbers posted by the local Public Health Units due to lags in reporting time.

Negative numbers (data anomaly)

Occasionally long-term care homes make updates to their data that results in records being removed from totals, causing negative counts to be reported.
