COVID-19 As numbers drop in Ontario Peterborough stays at zero cases

Ontario records fewer than 100 new COVID-19 cases for second straight day

Officials said 165 people recovered from novel coronavirus infection on Thursday, meaning the number of active cases remaining in the province declined by 79.

Ontario processed over 30,000 COVID-19 tests over the last day.

Windsor and Ottawa led the way for new infections with 15 each.

Nova Scotia continues to have no active cases of COVID-19, but health officials did announce one more fatality in the province, increasing the death toll to 64.

Ontario reported just 89 cases of COVID-19 on Thursday and three new deaths, a higher case count than what was detected on Wednesday but still lower than most of the past four months.

Meanwhile, in Quebec - the province hit hardest by the pandemic - 176 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed.

There were two more deaths, both in Toronto, for a total of 2,811.

As Toronto and Peel prepare to join the majority of Ontario in Stage 3 of reopening tomorrow, the province is reporting more good news in terms of new cases.

Alberta reported 113 new cases, bringing its total to 10,716.

More than 63 per cent of Thursday's new cases are in people under the age of 40. No additional deaths related to the virus were reported either.

Of the cases, 1,408 are now active, with 91 in hospital and 18 of them in intensive care. Before the recent stretch, the province hadn't recorded a triple-digit daily case increase since May 1.

This two-day trend will likely come as welcome news to those who are anxious about the possibility of a surge in new cases thanks to Stage 3, though health officials continue to warn that the virus remains in circulation and it is as important as ever to continue following public health advice.

No new cases were also identified in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.

A staff member at Elisabeth Bruyere Residence has tested positive.

The second new outbreak is at Grandir Ensemble - La Masisonnee, with a staff member testing positive for the virus.
