Province Confirms 904 New Cases of COVID-19 This Morning

Ontario reports 1868 new COVID-19 cases as stay-at-home order lifts in 27 public health units

With the overwhelming majority of residents in Ontario's long-term care homes now vaccinated, the province on Sunday announced which groups are next in line to receive COVID-19 vaccines.

Another 13 people have died from the virus across the province.

We are still missing numbers from Toronto Public Health.

According to the latest provincial numbers, Ontario has confirmed 309 cases of the B.1.1.7 variant first detected in the United Kingdom and nine cases of the B 1.351 variant first detected in South Africa.

The province said almost 30,400 tests were completed on Sunday and more than 27,000 people were tested on Monday.

But at a subsequent news conference at Queen's Park, Associate Medical Officer of Health Dr. Barbara Yaffe conceded that are not yet specific thresholds for when officials might consider using the mechanism.


The Ontario government is still working on drafting specific "triggers" for when the so-called emergency brake can be invoked, despite the recent lifting of the stay-at-home order and the reopening of businesses in many parts of the province.

The Ontario Federation of Labour later issued a statement of outrage over Ford's continued refusal to support the NDP's call for all-party consent to pass a bill that would provide seven permanent paid sick days, plus 14 additional days during a pandemic like the COVID-19 crisis.

He went on to claim that provincial sick days would simply duplicate the federal government's Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit, although many have already pointed out the CRSB is created to help those who have already tested positive for COVID-19, whereas paid sick days would instead protect workers who may be showing early symptoms. At this time, there's no data reporting error driving the number down, as has been the case after a weekend in weeks past. On Tuesday, officials reported 320 new cases in Toronto, 154 in Peel and 118 in York Region.

The Ford government has already lifted the stay-at-home order in every public health unit in Ontario with the exception of Toronto, Peel, York, and the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit.

There are now confirmed cases of the UK, South African, and Brazilian COVID-19 variants in the province.
