Ontario reports 74 new cases of COVID in schools and 515 schools with confirmed cases


Ontario has reported 422 more cases of COVID-19 and three more deaths, according to its latest report released Monday morning.

Ontario has administered 7,427 vaccine doses since its last daily update, with a total of 22,522,144 vaccines administered as of 8 p.m. the night before.


According to Star’s vaccine tracking, 1,1499,285 people in Ontario have received at least one shot. This amounts to approximately 88.2 percent of the eligible population aged 12 or older, and equivalent to 77.4 percent of the total population, including those not yet eligible for the vaccine.

The county says 1,102,859 people have completed their vaccinations, which means they received both doses. This amounts to approximately 84.6 percent of the eligible population aged 12 or older, and equivalent to 74.2 percent of the total population, including those not yet eligible for the vaccine.


The county now includes data that reflects hospitalizations and cases by vaccination status. Ontario warns that the new process may cause discrepancies between other hospital numbers collected using a different process, and that the data may not match daily COVID-19 case counts.

The county reports that 225 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in unvaccinated people, 13 have been partially vaccinated, and 161 have been in fully vaccinated people. Once again, the county warns that the data may not match the number of daily COVID cases because records with a missing or invalid health card number cannot be linked.

The county says data on hospitalizations by vaccination status will not be updated on Sunday and Monday due to incomplete reports over the weekend.

The county is also including data about COVID-19 in schools as part of its daily reports.

There are 515 schools with a reported case of COVID-19 out of 4,844 schools in the county, or 10.63 percent.

There were 74 new cases reported Monday for a total of 4,616 school-related COVID cases reported in Ontario.

The county says three schools have closed due to the outbreak or operational considerations. Does not include regional lockdown in the local public health unit area.

The county says 1,940 tests were completed the day before, with a positive rate of 1.8 percent.

There are 134 people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 in the county, including 108 patients in intensive care who have tested positive for COVID-19. 84 people are on ventilators.

Locally, Ontario has reported 61 new cases in Toronto, 47 in Peel District, 41 in York area, 38 in Ottawa, and 19 in Windsor-Essex.

Meanwhile, the county reported no new deaths in long-term care, so the number of residents who have died remains the same at 3,824, in the county’s latest report.

Ontario did not report new long-term care homes in the event of an outbreak, for a total of three or 0.5 percent of LTC homes in the province.

This data is self-reported by long-term care homes to the Ministry of Long-Term Care. The daily case and death figures may not immediately match those published by local public health units due to the late reporting time.

There are two more confirmed cases of the alpha variant that were first detected in the UK, for a cumulative total of 146,507 cases.
