TORONTO -- Ontario is reporting fewer than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases for the first time in a week.

The 966 new infections represent a decrease from Monday’s report when 1,023 cases were logged. Before that, the province added 1,062 cases on Sunday and 1,185 cases on Saturday.

Ontario’s lab-confirmed COVID-19 case total is now 302,805, including 285,262 recoveries and 6,997 deaths.

The province says that 11 of those deaths were recorded in the last 24 hours.

This is a breaking news story. More to come.


The numbers used in this story are found in the Ontario Ministry of Health's COVID-19 Daily Epidemiologic Summary. The number of cases for any city or region may differ slightly from what is reported by the province, because local units report figures at different times.
