Ontario reported a jump in new COVID-19 cases

Ontario reported 704 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, and four deaths.

This increase in COVID-19 cases comes the same day Ontario’s top doctor announced that he does not recommend the traditional Halloween this year in the province’s hotspots with door-to-door trick-or-treating.

Dr. David Williams is instead recommending virtual celebrations, organizing a Halloween candy hunt with people living in the same household, to carve pumpkins, or have a movie night, if you live in one of the hotspots.

If you don’t live in one of the province’s hotspots, and plan to go trick-or-treat, Williams recommendations include only going out with members of your household, to trick-or-treat outside, and that trick-or-treaters, and people handing out candy, wear a face covering.

Monday also marks four hotspots in the province under Stage 2 modified restrictions, with York region joining Toronto, Peel, and Ottawa.

The modified Stage 2 restrictions include prohibiting indoor dining, closing gyms and movie theatres, and capping public gatherings at 10 people indoors or 25 outdoors

244 new cases were reported in Toronto, 168 in Peel, 103 in York Region, and 51 in Ottawa, on Monday.

The day before, the province reported 658 new cases, so the latest number of new cases is a seven per cent jump compared to then.

Nearly 31,900 tests have been completed, and 607 more cases have been resolved, an 11.4 per cent drop compared to the day before.
