Quebec has now reported 141,038 total cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began and 7,033 deaths.
Ontario is reporting 1,708 new cases of COVID-19 today and 24 new deaths related to the virus.
More than half of the new cases remain in Toronto and Peel Region, which recorded 463 and 503 respectively.
The two regions are the only ones currently under lockdown under the province’s tiered, colour-coded pandemic response framework.
The province is moving five regions to higher alert levels tomorrow, which means tougher COVID-19 restrictions.
