COVID UPDATE

The province has witnessed a steady increase in the number of cases. The province reported 185 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, and 190 on Monday — the most on any single day since July 24. Data for both days was released early Tuesday because the province did not issue an updated report on Labour Day. 

Health Minister Christine Elliot announced that Ontario will be pausing  on further loosening of public health measures in the province for the next four weeks.
