In accordance with the May 14, 2020 provincial guidelines, "As of May 14, 2020, any Ontarian presenting with at least one symptom or sign from the list below should be considered for testing for COVID-19":
The COVID screening algorithm has been updated accordingly:
- Any major or minor symptom on its own is now considered sufficient for a positive screen and a testing consideration (previously 2 "minor" symptoms were required)
- Hoarseness and sneezing have been removed as symptoms
- Changed the testing recommendation text from, "You are probably eligible for COVID-19 testing" to the more informative, "Based on Canadian guidelines, COVID-19 testing should be considered."
