"While COVID-19 continues to impact people of all ages in Canada, infection rates are highest among those aged 20 to 39 years of age," Tam said.

She noted that transmission among younger, more mobile and social adults means there's an "ongoing risk" of spread to high-risk populations and settings.

According to the country's top doctor, social gatherings have been identified as "an important driver for spread."
