Staff at Humber River Hospital are celebrating the first day since March that their intensive care unit has no coronavirus patients.

As of Saturday, all coronavirus patients in the ICU had become well enough to be transferred to other units. Nurses at the hospital in Toronto’s northwest end posed for a photo to mark the occasion.

“Thank you to the sixth floor staff and physicians that have bonded together and provided exceptional care in this pandemic,” the hospital said in a tweet.

There are still 41 coronavirus patients in the ICU at other hospitals across the city, according to a news release from Toronto Public Health.

But for now, health care staff at Humber are celebrating.

Toronto Public Health reminded residents to practice physical distancing and wash their hands often as they get outside to enjoy the summer weather this weekend.
