Ontario's New COVID-19 Cases Today Are The Lowest Since November

Over the past several weeks, officials have noted that Ontario's COVID-19 cases are going down.

Tuesday's infection count is additional proof of that, as the province is reporting its lowest total since late November.

Out of almost 30,800 COVID-19 tests completed, the province is recording 1,022 new infections today. Toronto leads with 343 cases, followed by 250 in Peel and 128 in York Region.

Ontario logged 1,009 cases on November 24, one of the lowest totals in the last several months aside from last week's data reporting error, according to CP24.

Additionally, the province administered 398,633 vaccine doses by 8 p.m. yesterday.

This news comes as Ontario begins to lift the stay-at-home order over the next two weeks.

Toronto, York, and Peel will have theirs lifted on February 22, at which point they will return to an enhanced version of the province's colour-coded zones that were in effect before the provincial shutdown.

While three public health units have been cleared to return to the Green-Prevent zone, the province has also created an "emergency brake" that allows regions to go straight into Grey-Lockdown if COVID-19 variants are detected.
