Where the numbers come from

Case data

Every day, child care centres and licensed home child care agencies report to the Ministry of Education on children, students and staff that have positive cases of covid 19.

If there is a discrepancy between numbers reported here and those reported publicly by a Public Health Unit, please consider the number reported by the Public Health Unit to be the most up-to-date.

Child care centres and homes

Licensed child care centres and home child care agencies report when a centre or home is closed to the Ministry of Education, using the Child Care Licensing System. Data is taken from the system at 12:00 pm the previous day.
