Online COVID-19 Reporting Portal
Public Health would like facilities to continue reporting their positive rapid results. However, due to the current surge in cases, a public health nurse may not be able to follow up on the reported rapid test.
Who should use the online reporting portal
- Health care settings (EMS, long-term care and retirement homes)
- Congregate living sites (group homes or shelters)
- Workplaces such as farms with international agriculture workers (previously referred to as temporary foreign workers) and factories
If you live or work in a congregate setting or are a health care worker, please report your positive rapid antigen test using this online reporting portal.
Other workplaces and businesses not listed above are asked to follow the guidance on COVID-19 in the workplace.
For more information, review provincial guidance documents.
Public Health uses information from this form to support case management and contact tracing.
How to use the online reporting portal
Use the portal to report:
- Confirmed cases of COVID-19 (positive laboratory PCR tests and positive rapid molecular tests, such as ID Now)
- Rapid antigen test positive results
- Probable cases that meet case definition (only health care providers are required to report these to Public Health)
Cases outlined above should only be reported if individuals:
- Attended / presented in-person within 48 hours before they developed symptoms, OR
- Had no symptoms, but attended / presented in-person within 48 hours before their positive test result
What happens after submitting information to this portal
Public health uses information from this reporting portal to prioritize outbreak investigations. Learn about Public Health's personal health information practices.
At this time, Public Health will not be following up with positive rapid antigen results unless the individual is a health care worker, or lives or works in a congregate setting.
If you are positive on a rapid antigen test, you are considered positive for COVID-19. Visit our self-isolation page for information on who should self-isolate and testing information.
