The number of new COVID-19 cases in the Region of Peel continues to rise and fall by the day as two more schools in Caledon say they have active outbreaks of the virus.

Peel Public Health (PPH) said there were 11 new cases in Brampton, another 10 in Mississauga, and three cases in Caledon and surrounding area on Friday.

According to PPH, there have been 118,487 cases of COVID-19 across the Region of Peel. Of those cases 117,216 have recovered and 244 are pending.

Nearly 3,500 people have been hospitalized in Peel because of COVID-19, and 1,029 people have died.

The province reported a total of 598 new COVID-19 cases on Friday and four more deaths. The province-wide case count on Friday was only slightly lower that the 642 new cases reported on Thursday.

PHP said 89.1 per cent of eligible Peel residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 84.9 per cent have been fully immunized.

More than 12,500 individuals have also received a third booster dose.

Boosters can be booked online through the province’s COVID-19 vaccination portal for healthcare workers, people over 70 and essential care givers 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.
