When asked about long wait times and increased demand at assessment sites, Ford had good news to share.

Ford mentioned a few specific pharmacies that will host testing centres, including Loblaws, Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, and Walmart.

Yesterday, Burlington's Joseph Brant Hospital reported a 1,400% increase in demand at their COVID-19 assessment centre, calling it "unprecedented."

The province recorded 401 new cases of the disease today — the highest daily increase since early June.
