The province also says another death from more than a month ago has been added to the overall tally following a data cleanup.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says 540 of today’s new cases are among people who are not fully vaccinated or whose immunization status is unknown.

She says 245 people are in hospital with COVID-19, and 182 are in intensive care.

The minister notes, however, that not all hospitals report on weekends.

Elliott says the province has reached or is nearing new vaccination milestones, with 85% of eligible residents having received an initial dose while nearly 79% are fully immunized with two shots.

Ontario’s proof-of-vaccination system, which will limit access to a wide variety of non-essential settings across the province to those who are fully inoculated, is set to take effect on Wednesday.
