With ongoing community transmission of COVID-19, the Ministry of Health has introduced updated guidance on the Management of Cases and Contacts of COVID-19 in Ontario (PDF),which helps to ensure appropriate public health action is taken regardless of patient eligibility for or access to COVID-19 testing. Clinicians are encouraged to review the guidance document and to be aware of eligibility criteria for PCR testing. Please note that provincial guidance may change in the future in response to changes in epidemiology and testing capacity.

Please view the webpages below for more detailed information.
