Current Status in Ontario

The estimated number of cases per day, rate and percentage are predicted 7-day midpoint averages based on the latest observed 7-day midpoint average of the number of cases per day and the latest observed 3-day average of R(t). The estimated number of deaths per day is based on the latest 7-day midpoint average.
The variants with N501Y mutation (N501Y+) include Alpha (B.1.1.7), Beta (B.1.351) and Gamma (P.1); the variants with E484K mutation (E484K+) include Beta and Gamma; Alpha is the most frequent N501Y+ and/or E484K+ variant in Ontario. The variants without N501Y mutation (N501Y-) and without E484K mutation (E484K-) include Delta (B.1.617.2); the Wild Type was the most frequent N501Y-/E484K- variant until April 2021, Delta is the most frequent N501Y-/E484K- variant in Ontario now.
The effective reproduction number R(t)  corresponds to the average number of additional infections caused by 1 infection. An R(t) of greater than 1 indicates exponential growth. Change per week is the change as compared with 7 days previously. The doubling time is the estimated time required in days until the current number of cases doubles based on the latest observed 3-day average of R(t). *R(t) not reported due to low daily case numbers
Colour codes are adapted from Ontario’s original COVID-19 response framework: green – prevent; yellow – protect; orange – restrict; red – control.

COVID-19 Vaccination in Ontario

Current COVID-19 Risk in Ontario by Vaccination Status


Estimates are age-standardized using Ontario’s current population and a single age cut-off to take into account differences in vaccine uptake and the risk of severe disease between children, adolescents and young adults (0-29 years) and remaining adults (30+ years). The currently available data do not allow for a more granular age standardization. Estimates are based on (1) 7-day averages of the proportions of fully vaccinated and unvaccinated patients hospitalized on wards and ICUs reported in Ontario’s daily surveys, and of fully vaccinated and unvaccinated cases; (2) on COVID-19 hospital and ICU occupancy and the 7-day average of COVID-19 cases in Ontario; and (3) on Ontario’s age-specific vaccination data 7 days before. Hospital occupancy includes patients in ICU. All estimates are updated daily.

Number of Public Health Units With Exponential Growth in Ontario

There are 34 Public Health Units (PHUs) in Ontario. Exponential growth is defined as an effective reproduction number R(t) >1 for all variants combined.

Oxford Stringency Index and Out-of-Home Mobility in Ontario

The Oxford Stringency Index is a composite measure assessing policy measures that governments have taken to tackle COVID-19. It uses nine response indicators including workplace closures, school closures, travel bans, and vaccination policies and ranges from 0 to 100 (100 = strictest).
