ICES COVID-19 Dashboard


This dashboard provides an overview of the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of individuals tested and confirmed positive for COVID-19 in Ontario.

By linking COVID-19 test results from the Ontario Laboratories Information System (OLIS) database to health and other administrative data from the ICES data repository, ICES provides rich information on the demographics and medical histories of individuals who are tested. This information is accessible to health system stakeholders, including the Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario, clinicians, researchers and the public.

The dashboard is updated on a weekly basis using timely data provided by ICES’ data partners.

For a detailed report of COVID-19 laboratory testing in Ontario in the first three months of the pandemic, see the full report.

As of the June 15 dashboard update, testing episodes from Distributed Labs (DL) data and Public Health Ontario (PHO) Labware data, and individuals confirmed positive from the integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS), not already in OLIS, were added. In iPHIS, cases were reported to the public health unit as of the end of day, October 11.
