Ontario is reporting a new single day record of 2,275 new cases of COVID-19 today.
Health Minister Christine Elliott says 711 in Toronto, 586 in Peel Region, 185 in Windsor-Essex, and 154 in York Region.
She says the province has conducted nearly 39,600 tests since the last daily report.
The province says the latest data reflects a 27-hour period for most of Ontario’s public health units because of a change in how the figures are gathered.
The news comes a day after Ontario administered its first COVID-19 vaccination to a personal support worker in Toronto.
Long-term care workers from an Ottawa care home will be next, as that city rolls out its vaccination program this morning.
