She added that with 160 more resolved, there are six fewer active cases in the province. And, yesterday Ontario processed over 17,300 tests.
“We continue to lead the country in daily COVID-19 testing,” Elliot said.
But this number falls short of the 20,000 and more testing being done recently, which is the goal Ford’s striving for.
There has been a total of 35,948 confirmed cases in Ontario to date, with 31,426 resolved, and a total of 2,689 coronavirus deaths, according to the Province.
In long-term care homes, there have been 5,514 reported cases with 1,717 deaths among residents.
On June 27, the province extended its emergency orders until July 10, although it has removed certain restrictions for Stage 2 indoor sports and recreational fitness facilities.
Ontario has also extended its state of emergency until July 15 and is hopeful it will not need to be extended again.
