Ontario is reporting a single-day decrease in the number of new COVID-19 cases with 788 new infections reported.

Monday’s report brings the seven-day average of the number of COVID-19 cases reported in the province to 783. This time last week, that number was 656.

Ontario also reported three additional COVID-19-related deaths in the previous 24-hour period, bringing the total number of deaths to 9,997.

On Sunday, Ontario reported the highest number of new cases in a single day since May with 964 infections recorded.

Monday’s new cases were announced less than 24 hours after Ontario reported its first two cases of the new Omicron variant. No new cases of Omicron were reported in Ontario on Monday.

Laboratories across Ontario have processed 26,016 COVID-19 tests in the past 24 hours, bringing the positivity rate to 3.5%.

Of the cases recorded today, 412 were found in unvaccinated individuals, 315 were fully vaccinated individuals and 27 cases were recorded in partially vaccinated individuals. The vaccination status of the remaining 34 cases is unknown.

There are 148 in Ontario currently in intensive care due to COVID-19, according to provincial data.

Since the start of the pandemic, Ontario has recorded 617,803 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 600,990 recoveries.

In Ontario, 22,950,908 doses of the vaccine have been administered to date, with 89.7% of Ontarians aged 12 and over having received a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

More than 86 percent of eligible people are fully immunized.


The numbers used in this story can be found in the Ontario Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 Daily Epidemiological Summary. The number of cases for a city or region may differ slightly from what is reported by the province, as local units report the numbers at different times. Health experts have said the number of COVID-19 infections identified in fully vaccinated individuals will naturally increase as more people receive their two vaccines.
