The Government of Ontario confirmed 1,316 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday morning and 16 more virus-related deaths.

Today’s cases are an increase from Tuesday’s 1,185, but lower than Monday’s 1,631, which was high due to a data system glitch.

The province is reporting 1,212 resolved cases.

Of the newly announced cases, 428 are in Toronto, 244 are in Peel, and 149 are in York Region.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said over 54,100 tests were completed, and 978,797 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines have been administered.

On Monday, March 8, the Stay at Home orders were lifted in Toronto, Peel Region, and North Bay-Parry Sound at 12 am. All three regions entered the Grey Zone of Ontario’s reopening framework.

In the Grey Zone, retail is permitted to reopen at 25% capacity, but indoor gatherings are not permitted.

All of Ontario’s 34 regions have now reentered the colour-coded framework.

To date, Ontario has seen 312,428 COVID-19 cases and 7,099 virus-related deaths.
