There were 53 cases of COVID-19 in Mississauga and Brampton on Monday as the numbers of new cases in Ontario stayed below 500 for the seventh day in a row.

According to the Peel Public Health, Mississauga recorded 29 cases on Monday while Brampton had 24. And while case numbers across Ontario continued on a downward trend, the province recorded two deaths on Monday.

Nearly 88 per cent of Peel region residents over the age of 12 have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, and more than 4,900 residents have received a third booster dose.

As of Monday, digital vaccination receipt certificates are available for download on the province’s proof of vaccination portal.

Under Ontario’s vaccine certificate program, only those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or have a valid medical exemption from a doctor, can access certain settings, such as theatres, nightclubs and restaurant dining rooms.

Individuals will still need to wait at least 14 days after getting their final dose to access these businesses with proof of vaccination.
