On Saturday, 710 lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported in Ontario. Due to testing regulations that limit access to PCR tests in the province, experts believe the figure is probably an underestimate of the total number of cases.

The number of positive tests reported on Sunday has decreased. Public Health Ontario said that 7.1 percent of test results were positive on Sunday, compared to 7.9 % on Saturday.

91.4 percent of Ontario citizens aged 12 and up have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, while 60.3 percent of those aged 18 and up have been boosted.

Since the outbreak, more than 33 million vaccines have been given out.
