Not a good start to a weekend as Niagara Region saw 36 new COVID-19 cases today (November 5). With only eight cases resolved, that shoots the city back up to 226 cases – the highest it’s been in three months.

As well, while there were only two patients in the hospital yesterday, that shot up to six overnight, two of them in the ICU. Of the six, just two are fully-vaccinated.

St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Fort Erie continue to be the hardest-hit communities. St Catharines is showing 63 cases, Niagara Falls has 49 while Fort Erie is at 46.

Behind them but in the double-digits are Lincoln with 17 and Welland with 10.

The remaining seven municipalities range from three cases in West Lincoln up to nine in Thorold.
