Here’s an update on COVID-19 cases in Ontario and the greater Kawarthas region.

Ontario is reporting 213 new COVID-19 cases, the largest daily increase since June. As has been the case for the previous two weeks, most of the new cases are in Toronto (71), Peel (38), and Ottawa (37), but there are now also more cases being reported in Waterloo (15), York (14), and Durham (9), with 6 cases also reported in each of Hamilton and Halton. The remaining 26 public health units are reporting five or fewer cases, with 18 reporting no new cases.

This is the highest daily increase in Ontario since June 29, when 257 cases were reported. Almost 70% of the new cases are among people under the age of 40, with 20% among people under 20. There are no new deaths to report and the number of people hospitalized because of COVID-19 has declined.

“All I’ve been asking is, please try to avoid these big gatherings, please try to avoid the weddings that I heard were 150, 170 people,” said Ontario Premier Doug Ford at a media conference with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday (September 11) during a groundbreaking ceremony for the Côté Gold Project in Gogama. “Just follow the guidelines and everyone will be okay.”
