There were 31 new cases of COVID-19 and one new death reported in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon on Tuesday.

Peel Public Health (PPH) said there were 17 new COVID-19 cases in Mississauga, another eight in Brampton, and four cases in Caledon.

According to PPH, there have been 118,363 cases of COVID-19 across the Region of Peel. A total of 3,498 individuals have been hospitalized in Peel because of COVID-19, and 1,029 people have died.

The province reported a total of 441 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday and three new deaths.

PHP said 88.9 per cent of eligible Peel residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 84.6 per cent have been fully immunized.

More than 9,100 individuals have also received a third booster dose.

Healthcare workers, people over 70 and essential care givers can start booking their COVID-19 booster shots if at least six months have passed since their last dose.

Individuals who received two doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine or one dose of the Janssen vaccine are also eligible for the booster starting on Saturday.

Boosters can be booked online through the province’s COVID-19 vaccination portal.

And with flu season fast approaching, the province is urging residents to get a flu shot at the same time as any COVID-19 immunizations.

An outbreak of COVID-19 at Castle Oaks Public School in Brampton was declared over on Monday.

But PPH said there are still four elementary or private schools in Mississauga and two in Brampton with active COVID-19 outbreaks as of Tuesday:

  • Elite Montessori School (Private) – Mississauga
  • Sherwood Heights School (Private) – Mississauga
  • Kaban Montessori School (Private) – Mississauga
  • St. Teresa Avila – Mississauga
  • St. Jean Brebeuf – Brampton
  • Tribune Public School – Brampton

An outbreak in a school is defined as two or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in students, staff or providers with an epidemiological link within a 14-day period where at least one case could have acquired infection in the school.

The Region of Peel now requires anyone over the age of 12 show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a valid medical exemption to enter any hockey arenas, fitness centres and other municipal facilities in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.
