  • To view epidemiologic trends and case break down by demographic factors such as age and sex, visit Public Health Ontario’s COVID-19 Data Tool.  This tool allows you to view COVID-19 data for Ontario overall, as well as for an individual public health unit.

  • The province of Ontario also publishes a daily epidemiologic summary report, accessible here, which provides provincial and regional data on confirmed cases, demographics and trends of cases since the outbreak began including geography, exposure and severity.
