Ontario reports 658 new cases of COVID-19

Ontario reported 658 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, an 18 per cent decrease from Saturday’s tally of 805.

There were 197 new cases in Toronto, while Peel Region recorded 155, York Region had 94 and Ottawa had 66.

Five more deaths were reported. Of the 247 patients in hospital, 71 were in intensive care units, and 43 of the ICU patients were on ventilators.

The province processed about 40,900 tests on Saturday, Health Minister Christine Elliott said on Twitter.

To date, the province has recorded 64,371 cases of COVID-19, 55,371 of which are listed as resolved, and 3,046 deaths.

On Friday, Premier Doug Ford ordered York Region to revert to modified Stage 2 restrictions for 28 days. That means indoor dining, gyms and movie theatres will close starting Monday.

The Ontario government is also imposing visitation and absence restrictions on 28 long-term-care homes in York Region.

The restrictions come into effect on Monday. Visits will be restricted to essential visitors and caregivers, and short-term and temporary absences will only be allowed for medical or compassionate reasons.

An outbreak was also declared Thursday in two units at Toronto Western hospital, with 5 staff members affected and three patients as of Saturday.
