About COVID-19 claims

With the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, multiple potential sources of COVID-19 now exist in the community, at home and outside of work, creating challenges in establishing work-relatedness when adjudicating claims.

All COVID-19 claims received by the WSIB are adjudicated on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration the facts and circumstances, to determine if they are work-related.

For information about when and how to report a claim or if you are unsure about whether to report a claim, please visit our FAQs page to find questions about COVID-19 claims, coverage, and information for businesses about claims and filing obligations.
