Ontario is reporting 170 new cases of COVID-19 and three new deaths on Saturday.

The test positivity rate is 0.8%, down slightly from 0.9% yesterday.

Locally, there are 44 new cases in Toronto, 26 in Peel Region, 15 in Waterloo Region and 17 in Hamilton.

The number of active cases in the province has increased by 20 – there have been 150 resolved cases.

The number of intensive care units continues to fall, by four from Friday, falling to the lowest point since mid-November with 132 patients.

Yesterday, nearly 125,000 COVID-19 vaccines were administered.

By 8 p.m. as of Friday, 80.2 percent of Ontario residents 12 and older had received at least one dose, while 65.6 percent were now fully immunized.

The City of Toronto is hosting a special vaccination clinic at Mel Lastman Square in North York this weekend.

The clinic – dubbed “Vax the North” – is designed to help increase COVID-19 vaccination rates in the region. The city says the biggest lag in vaccination rates is in the 18-45 age group.
