The Province of Ontario has confirmed 115 new COVID-19 cases as of Monday morning, which is the first time in a week over 100 cases have been reported.

There are no confirmed deaths.

Monday’s new cases are a slight increase from Sunday’s 79 and Saturday’s 70 — the lowest daily count since March.

According to Health Minister Christine Elliot, even with today’s slight uptick, residents shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that Ontario’s numbers are trending downwards.

“Windsor-Essex will join the rest of the province in Stage 3 as of Wednesday. This is an exciting step forward and one only made possible thanks to the hard work and diligence of all Ontarians to stop the spread – but we have to keep it up,” Elliot added.

To date, there have been a total of 40,161 cases with 36,381 recovered and 2,786 reported deaths.
