It was a weekend of broken records. Both Saturday and Sunday's COVID-19 cases in Ontario surpassed the highest numbers the province has ever recorded.
On Saturday, a total of 978 new cases were reported, with 1,024 on Sunday.
Altogether that's 2,020 new cases over the weekend. Like we needed any more reminders of this year.
Total new cases in Ontario this weekend
Over the weekend, 83,000 tests were completed, which is under Ontario's goal of 50,000 tests per day.
Almost 700 of the 2,020 cases were in Toronto.
Toronto, Peel, and Ottawa currently have approximately two weeks left of modified stage 2. Premier Ford has not disclosed whether these measures will be extended.
Today, Ford is expected to announce additional regions that will see closures, which could include Halton and Durham.
2020, we've seen enough.
