Ontario is reporting 421 new COVID-19 cases today and 17 new deaths.
That brings the province to a total of 7,470 cases, including 291 deaths and 3,357 cases that have been resolved.
It’s an increase of six per cent over Sunday’s total, continuing a relatively low growth rate over the past several days.
The number of patients in hospital — 760 — rose slightly, but rates of patients in intensive care and on ventilators remained relatively stable.
Premier Doug Ford expressed frustration last week that Ontario has been testing for COVID-19 well below its capacity of 13,000 a day.
And while the province has said it will do 8,000 tests daily by Wednesday, just over 5,000 were completed in the last 24 hours.
There have been at least 89 COVID-19 outbreaks reported in long-term care homes across the province.
