Of the new cases, there are 517 in Peel, 494 in Toronto, 189 in York, and 130 in Halton.*
These numbers come from over 58,000 processed tests, which is above the province's goal of 50,000 processed tests daily.
The province's modelling data predicts that Ontario will see 2,000 new infections a day by December 1 unless there's a drastic change in measures.
Since then, Toronto and Peel have been placed into lockdown — aka the grey zone of the new provincial COVID-19 framework.
To date, the province is reporting 109,361 cases of COVID-19.
