Elliott notes that 28 of Ontario's public health units reported five or fewer cases on Tuesday, and 18 reported no new cases at all.

"Toronto is reporting 48 cases with 42 in Peel and 37 in Ottawa," she wrote.

A handful of these can be linked to a wedding celebration that took place in multiple regions of Ontario in late August, which has led to 23 new infections.

Meanwhile, Quebec has gotten over 200 new cases per day over the last two days.
