No new deaths were reported on Friday, leaving the COVID-19 toll at 267 residents.

There are 11 people hospitalized with complications from COVID-19, including one in intensive care.


The Eastern Ontario Health Unit is reporting one new case, for a total of 199 cases since the start of the pandemic. One case was withdrawn from the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit account for a total of 364 cases.

The number of known active cases of COVID-19 declined slightly on Friday to 187.

The number of active cases has dropped by 12, following 25 new resolved cases.

OPH says 2,568 cases of COVID-19 in the city are considered resolved, representing 85% of all cases known to date.

The number of active cases is the total number of laboratory confirmed cases minus the number of resolved cases and deaths. A case is resolved 14 days after the onset of known symptoms or a positive test result and the case is not death.

Ottawa Public Health continues to say that the number of actual infections in the city could be between five and 30 times the number of confirmed infections.
