Ontario is reporting 2,155 people in hospital with COVID-19 and 486 people in ICU.

Ontario is reporting 11 more deaths from COVID-19.

There are 2,088 new COVID-19 cases being reported today, but Public Health Ontario has said the true number is likely higher because of changes to the province’s testing policy that limit access for many residents.
