COVID-19 Pandemic

Please find all statements related to COVID-19 pandemic in our Media Centre.

The Ontario government has launched an independent commission to investigate spread within long-term care homes, how residents, staff and families were impacted, and the adequacy of measures taken by the province and other parties to prevent, isolate, and contain the spread. The Commission will provide the government with guidance on how to better protect long-term care residents and staff from any outbreaks in the future. Please visit the Commission website for ongoing updates. The commissioners are expected to deliver their final report by April 30, 2021.

Are you a family member of a long-term care resident with questions or concerns? Please call the Ministry of Long-Term Care's family COVID-19 hotline, available 7 days a week. They can be reached at 1-866-434-0144.
