Ontario is reporting 269 new COVID-19 cases and six additional deaths on Tuesday.

It is the smallest daily increase of new cases since Aug. 5 and the first time the province has reported fewer than 300 cases since then.

Of the new cases,176 are in individuals who are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status and 93 are in fully vaccinated individuals.

The rolling seven-day average drops to 364 cases, reaching the lowest point since Aug. 11. The average is down 43 cases from one week ago.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says 233 people are hospitalized with COVID-19. Among them, 203 are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status and 30 are fully vaccinated.

Halloween was essentially cancelled in Toronto and much of the GTA last year due to the pandemic — but The provincial government has released guidelines for safely celebrating Halloween this year. Trick-or-treating was cancelled in Toronto and much of the GTA last year due to the pandemic.

Most Canadian parents say they plan to take their kids trick-or-treating on Sunday — but a new survey suggests not everyone is comfortable with opening their doors.

The study by Leger found that over 90 per cent of respondents whose kids trick-or-treated last year plan to allow them to go out again this year — but fewer than half of Canadians say they will be opening their doors to trick-or-treaters.

  1. Doug Ford says we can get out of all restrictions by March 2022( the dangling of a new shiny carrot), …..but only if conditions are positive……Well in the last umpteen years flu and cold season is from October to February……Do you see conditions getting worst or better from now to then???? Oh how those goal posts keep moving!!!!!

  2. Hey, question. Next time Twitter has a hysterical freakout over the next SARS mutation, are we going to let our incompetent prime minister and the crackhead’s brother destroy our businesses, our families, and our children’s education? With a <1% mortality rate?

    Cuz I'm not really feeling it. I think next time we need less liberalism at the helm and more cold realism.

    Thanks.
