Ontario confirms 3,422 new COVID-19 cases, nearly 1 in 3 found in Toronto

Ontario recorded 3,422 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, with 1,035 of those infections discovered in Toronto.

A provincewide stay-at-home order remains in place.

There were also 585 new cases in Peel, 254 in Windsor-Essex, 246 in York and 186 in the Niagara area.

Ontario has now administered 200,097 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, and remains in the first phase of its rollout plan.

Premier Doug Ford and Toronto Mayor John Tory are set to tour the city’s first mass vaccination site, located at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, later Sunday. The two leaders are set to provide brief remarks but will not be holding a news conference.

Mass vaccinations haven’t started yet (long-term care and health care settings are being prioritized) but Ford’s office says the Toronto facility will serve as a “blueprint” for what could be coming to other locations in the coming months.

More to come.
