It’s getting to be that any day for new COVID-19 cases in Niagara Region that’s in the teens or single digits is a rarity lately.

So there was some small sense of relief today (November 8) when the region posted 16 new cases after a weekend that saw 78 new ones.

With 25 cases resolved, that saw the region drop to 261 ongoing cases with eight people presently in Niagara hospitals – three of them in the ICU.

St. Catharines continues to have the lion’s share of cases with 71, followed by Fort Erie with 54 and Niagara Falls with 47. Three more municipalities are in the double-digits as Lincoln has 22 cases; Welland has 17 and Niagara-on-the-Lake has 13.

The remaining six municipalities range from two cases in West Lincoln to eight each in Port Colborne and Thorold.
