Ontario reported 1,058 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, a slight decrease from the 1,087 cases on Sunday.

Eleven more people have also died, bringing the province’s COVID-19 death toll to 6,872 people.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says there are 325 new cases in Toronto, 215 in Peel and 87 in York Region.

This is the fifth straight day where more than 1,000 cases have been reported, following several days of lower case counts that were likely under-reported due to data migration issues at Toronto Public Health.

The government also said around 31,200 COVID-19 tests have been completed and 569,455 vaccine doses have been administered.
