Ontario reports 33 new COVID-19 cases in Ottawa on Friday

OTTAWA — Public Health Ontario is reporting 33 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Friday.

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

Across Ontario, health officials confirmed another 781 new cases of COVID-19. Another 17 Ontarians have died due to COVID-19, but 14 of those deaths happened more than two month ago and were added today because of a data clean up.

Another 625 existing cases of COVID-19 across the province are now considered resolved.

Public Health Ontario reported another 21 cases across eastern Ontario, including 12 new cases in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, four in Hastings Prince Edward, two in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, and three in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark.

This story will be updated. CTV News Ottawa will have the latest as it becomes available.
