Coronavirus Canada Updates: Two Toronto hospitals declare COVID-19 outbreaks

Two Toronto hospitals have declared COVID-19 outbreaks this week, as the city grapples with an increasing number of cases.

An outbreak in a hospital unit means there have been at least two COVID-19 cases within a 14-day period that could reasonably have been acquired in the hospital.

There are currently four units at St. Joseph’s hospital in the city’s west end with an outbreak status, while a fifth unit is under “heightened awareness,” meaning there has been a chance of exposure to the unit, said Unity Health spokesperson Robyn Cox.
