COVID 19 Resources
Wear a mask!
Wear a non-medical grade mask for necessary outings and always wear it properly covering your nose and mouth. A bandanna, scarf, or cloth covering can also be worn. Other safety steps must also be used: hand washing, physical distancing, and do not touch your face.
The COVID-19 Test Results Viewer is a web-based tool (“Viewer”) that will enable you to access and view your COVID-19 test results from the Ministry of Health. The Viewer is connected to the Ministry’s Ontario Laboratories Information System (“OLIS”) database, which contains your laboratory test information, including your COVID-19 test report, submitted to the Ministry by participating laboratories across Ontario. The Viewer is maintained by Ontario Health on behalf of the Ministry.
