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.

Forward sortation area (FSA) refers to the first three characters of a postal code.
Public Health Unit (PHU) refers to a health agency that provides community health programs to a specific region. There are 34 PHUs in Ontario.
Testing rates refer to the number of persons tested per 100,000 persons for a defined group (e.g., age group, residents living in the geographical area [e.g., Ontario, FSA, PHU]).
Percent positivity refers to the percentage of persons testing positive for COVID-19 among all persons tested during the week for a defined group (e.g., age group, residents living in the geographical area [e.g., Ontario, FSA, PHU]).
Incidence refers to the number of persons who were tested positive for COVID-19 for among all persons in a defined group ( (e.g., age group, residents living in the geographical area [e.g., Ontario, FSA, PHU]).
Vaccine coverage refers to the number of persons who received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine per 100 persons for a defined group (e.g., age group, residents living in the geographical area [e.g., Ontario, FSA, PHU]).
Neighbourhood risk refers to the likelihood of getting infected with COVID-19 based on the number of persons who ever tested positive for COVID-19 in the area. Postal code regions with a higher incidence of COVID-19 are part of neighbourhood risk group = 1, where postal code regions with a lower incidence of COVID-19 are part of neighbourhood risk group = 10.
