## Data Update

Starting February 1, 2021, laboratory test indicators are based on the number of laboratory tests performed and the percentage of tests positive. These data replace previous metrics based on unique individuals tested and provide a more accurate measure of test positivity and promote greater standardization in reporting across Canada. The proportion of tests positive is expected to decrease compared with previous person-based methods, as all tests will be included in the calculation, including new tests on the same person over time.
