Note: numbers provided are for the entire NWHU catchment area

NWHU no longer reports on “pending” test results because we have no reliable way of knowing how many tests have been administered and are in transit to the Public Health Ontario Lab and currently being processed. The most accurate number to provide the public is the number of tests completed and results received.​

For more information about each case, see Ontario's COVID-19 test results data​. ​
