On Sunday, the count of COVID-19 hospitalizations noted in Ontario fell to its lowest level as early January.

COVID-19 has infected 2,230 people, according to the province. This is a decrease from Saturday’s 2,493 and Friday’s 2,634.

It’s the lowest number of hospital admissions the province has reported since January 5.

Because not all hospitals report COVID-19 statistics to the province over the weekend, the number on Monday is slightly higher.

On Sunday, the number of individuals reported in intensive care dropped to 486. It’s the first time in nearly a month that the number has fallen below 500.

COVID-19 has claimed the lives of 56 more people, according to the province.

“Of these, two deaths occurred on February 5, 16 deaths occurred on February 4, nine deaths occurred on February 3, and the remaining occurred in the preceding days,” according to the Ministry of Health.

Long-term care facility residents accounted for 12 of the deaths announced on Sunday.

Since the pandemic’s start in March 2020, officials say there have been a total of 11,825 COVID-19-related mortalities in the province.

On Sunday, the province reported 2,887 fresh cases of COVID-19, but health officials warn that this figure is likely underestimated due to testing limitations as well as backlogs.

The Ministry of Health reports that the province’s positivity rate is 11.8 percent, based on 17,502 tests processed in the last 24 hours.

On Monday, Ontario will mark one week since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, allowing indoor dining as well as gyms to reopen with capacity restrictions.

On February 21, if public health trends continue to improve, Ontario will take the next step toward reopening.

On February 21, Ontario will raise the indoor social occasion limit to 25 people and the outdoor limit to 100 people.

The province will also detach capacity limits in indoor public settings that require proof of vaccination, such as restaurants, indoor sports as well as recreational facilities, and also cinemas, at this time.

Other settings that opt in to demand evidence of immunization will be able to raise capacity limits.

On February 21, spectator capacity at sporting events, concert venues, and theatres will be 50% full.
