Previously reported outbreaks at Harbour 60, The Cheesecake Factory, the TTC, and RES Construction are now over, as are separate outbreaks at the City of Toronto and Ellis Don.

TPH declares a COVID-19 outbreak in a workplace when two or more lab-confirmed virus cases with an epidemiological link within a 14-day period.

To protect the privacy of employees and businesses, only workplaces with 20 or more employees are publicly named.

To date, the City of Toronto has reported 176,896 COVID-19 cases and 3,639 deaths.
