The Government of Ontario confirmed 114 new COVID-19 cases on Monday morning, the lowest count the province has seen since September 1, 2020.

No new virus-related deaths have been reported.

Today’s cases are lower than Sunday’s 166, Saturday’s 179, Friday’s 183, Thursday’s 210, Wednesday’s 194, and Tuesday’s 164.

Of the newly announced cases, 18 are in Grey Bruce, 15 are in the Region of Waterloo, and 10 are in Toronto.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said over 15,900 tests were completed, and 17,119,624 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered.

Ontario is set to enter Step 3 of its COVID-19 reopening plan on July 16, days ahead of schedule due to rising vaccination rates.

The move allows gyms, fitness studios, and indoor dining to reopen. Indoor gatherings can have a maximum of 25 people, and up to 100 people can gather outdoors.

To date, Ontario has seen 547,263 COVID-19 cases and 9,251 deaths.
