The province reported 11,352 new cases on Tuesday. It is not clear how many of these infections are from lab delays and backlogs over the holidays.
Since the start of the pandemic, Ontario has reported 10,239 deaths and 816,450 confirmed cases.
Just two weeks ago, Ontario had just over 400 COVID-19-related hospitalizations and 165 COVID-19 patients in the ICU.
