As of Feb. 28, Toronto Public Health (TPH) is monitoring three positive cases of the novel coronavirus: COVID-19 in Toronto.

To date, there have been two other confirmed cases reported in Toronto. Both of these people have since recovered from their illness.

 

TPH continues to work with our provincial and federal health colleagues along with airports in response to this situation.  This latest case shows the system is working to keep people safe and the risk to Toronto residents remains low.
