Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
COVID-19 Cases at LHSC

LHSC will update the number of staff who have tested positive, and status of patient cases with COVID-19 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Total number of patients (as of midnight): 8

* To protect patient privacy as the numbers of patients with COVID-19 begins to decrease, we will be changing our practice of reporting inpatient numbers to reflect the total number of inpatients across LHSC as one collective number, rather than broken down by hospital site and CCTC/ICU/PCCU or general inpatient unit.
Updated June 5

Staff positive for COVID-19
The number of staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 is stable, with little increase in recent weeks.To protect the privacy of our staff, we will no longer be sharing this number unless there is a rise of 5 or more. 

The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving in Ontario. LHSC continues to take actions to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and protect our staff, physicians, patients, families and visitors. We want to reassure the community that LHSC remains safe.
