TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 184 new COVID-19 cases today, and 11 more deaths.
Roughly two-thirds of the new cases come from Toronto, Peel Region and Windsor-Essex — the only three areas that won’t be in Stage 2 of the province’s reopening plan as of Friday.
The new cases bring the province to a total of 32,554, which is an increase of 0.6 per cent over the previous day.
It includes 2,538 deaths and 27,431 resolved cases — 218 more than the previous day, continuing a trend of resolved cases growing more quickly than active ones.
The numbers of people in hospital and in intensive care with COVID-19 both dropped, though the number of people on ventilators rose slightly.
Meanwhile, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health is now recommending that hospitals start allowing family and caregiver visits in acute care settings.
