Ontario will release new COVID-19 projections today.
Dr. Adalsteinn Brown, co-chair of Ontario’s science advisory group, will present the data in an afternoon news conference.
Two weeks ago, Brown said projections indicated more contagious variants of COVID-19 are spreading in the province.
He said at the time that they accounted for five to 10 per cent of all cases.
Brown said strong public health measures, like a stay-at-home order, and vaccination of vulnerable groups were important to help avoid a third wave.
Toronto, Peel Region and North Bay, Ont., remain under a stay-at-home order but the province recently loosened restrictions for all other regions.View link »
