TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 135 new COVID-19 cases today, bringing the provincial total to 993.

There are three new deaths, meaning now 18 people have died of the virus in Ontario.

No information is available for any of the new cases, with everything listed as “pending.”

The 993 total cases include the 18 deaths as well as eight people whose infections have fully resolved.

Two residents of a Bobcaygeon, Ont., nursing home have died amid a COVID-19 outbreak there that has also left at least 14 staff members infected.

The local health unit says three residents at Pinecrest Nursing Home tested positive and since then, 35 other residents developed symptoms, though they have not been tested — per provincial guidelines — since the virus was already confirmed to be in the facility.
