Ontario reports 17 new COVID-19 cases in Ottawa, with zeroes elsewhere in eastern Ontario

OTTAWA — Public Health Ontario is reporting 17 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa, among the lowest daily case count province-wide in months.

Across Ontario, health officials reported 525 new cases of COVID-19, the lowest daily figure since Sept. 27, 2020. Public Health Ontario also reported 941 newly resolved cases and said 15 more Ontarians have died due to COVID-19.

Public Health Ontario also reported no new cases in any other health unit across eastern Ontario and removed one case from the total for the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Public Health unit.

A full local snapshot from Ottawa Public Health is due later this afternoon. Figures from OPH often differ from those provided by Public Health Ontario because the two health agencies pull data for their respective daily reports at different times of the day.
