Ontario is reporting 127 new COVID-19 cases and two deaths on Tuesday.

This is the second day in a row with less than 150 new infections. The province has reported fewer than 200 cases for 12 consecutive days.

The test positivity rate is 0.9%, up slightly from 0.8% a week ago.

There have been 13,586 tests performed in the past 24 hours.

Locally, there are 34 new cases in Toronto, 17 in Waterloo Region, 14 in York Region, 10 in Peel Region, 10 in Gray Bruce and 10 in Halton Region.

There were 126 resolved cases, increasing the number of active cases by one.

The seven-day moving average is down slightly to 152 cases.

the the province has reported 130 cases and no deaths on Monday.

There are now 149 people in intensive care with complications from COVID-19 and 98 intensive care ventilator patients.

132,963 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the past 24 hours.

As of 8 p.m. as of Monday, 79.6 percent of Ontario residents aged 12 and over had received at least one dose, while 62.2 percent were now fully immunized.

Ontario Science Advisory Table made a recommendation on Monday for a much different school year, with the return of extracurriculars, a relaxation of the masking, distancing and cohort rules when the risk is low, and the closure of schools only in catastrophic scenarios.

“In-person learning is essential for the learning and overall well-being of children and youth. Therefore, barring catastrophic circumstances, schools should remain open for in-person learning, ”the advisory table said.

Ontario experienced the longest hiatus in face-to-face classes in Canada.

But given the high vaccination rates in the province, the scientific table expects low levels of virus transmission and hospitalizations in the fall.

On Monday, Ontario colleges and universities learned that they should prepare to resume all classes and in-person activities this fall with no capacity limits or physical distancing, although many institutions still use a mix of in-person and online learning.

The Ministry of Colleges and Universities has asked institutions to have plans for how learning will continue in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak.
