Ontario has changed the eligibility for publicly funded COVID-19 testing. As a result, the daily case numbers provided by Ontario Public Health are not an accurate reflection of how many cases there are in the province.
Ontario reported that 1,106 people are hospitalized with COVID-19, and 19 new deaths occurred as of Wednesday.
One death from a previous month was removed from the cumulative total after a data scrub.
