OTTAWA – Ottawa Public Health says 41 other people in the city have tested positive for COVID-19, but the number of known active cases has fallen below 400.

To date, PHO has reported 29,775 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ottawa since the start of the pandemic. No new deaths were reported in Ottawa on Wednesday. A total of 595 residents of the city have died from COVID-19.

Across the province, health officials have confirmed 495 more cases of COVID-19. Eight more Ontarians have died and 760 existing cases are now considered resolved.

Across the region, Public Health Ontario has reported 20 new cases, including five in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, nine in Hastings Prince Edward, four in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington and two in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark.

Public Health Ontario added 39 cases to its total for Ottawa on Wednesday. PHO’s numbers often differ from Public Health Ontario’s because the two health agencies pull data for their respective daily snapshot reports at different times of the day.


Health Minister Christine Elliott said that of the 495 new cases reported in Ontario on Wednesday, 380 were in people who were not fully vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown and 115 were in people who were fully vaccinated.

Thirty-two of the 292 people hospitalized in Ontario with COVID-19 are fully vaccinated, including eight of 172 ICU patients, Elliott said. The rest of the patients are not fully immunized or their status is unknown.

Data from Ottawa Public Health suggests unvaccinated residents are 11 times more likely to contract COVID-19 than fully vaccinated residents.


There are 381 active cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Wednesday, up from 412 active cases on Tuesday.

Ottawa Public Health has reported 72 newly resolved cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa. The number of resolved cases of coronavirus in Ottawa is 28,799.

The number of active cases is the total number of laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 minus the number of resolved cases and deaths. A case is considered resolved 14 days after the onset of known symptoms or a positive test result.


There are 17 people in Ottawa-area hospitals with COVID-19-related illnesses on Tuesday, up from 15 on Monday. The last time hospitalizations were this high was in mid-June.

Ten people are in intensive care, up from eight previously. Intensive care admissions have not been in double digits in Ottawa since May.
