Ontario recorded 373 new cases of COVID-19 today, up from 492 on Friday and 486 a week ago.

So far, over 87% of eligible Ontarians have received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and over 83% have received two doses and are considered fully immunized.

Children under 12 are not yet eligible to receive a vaccine.

The number of virus-related deaths in the province stands at 9,845.

Doug Ford’s government on Friday announced plans to lift remaining public health restrictions by March, including indoor masks and the vaccine certificate system that went into effect last month.

More soon.
