Across Ontario, 145 people are hospitalized and 168 people in ICU, Elliott tweeted. Not all Ontario hospitals report over the weekend, so Monday’s numbers can be skewed.
The province has administered 22,243,609 doses of COVID-19 vaccines. Across the province, nearly 87.5% of those aged 12 and up have received at least one dose, and 83.1% have received both.
To date, Ontario has seen 595,235 COVID-19 infections and 9,815 deaths.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford is expected to make an announcement alongside Minister Elliott Monday afternoon. It is anticipated that he will announce further easing of restrictions and capacity limits.
