Ontario is reporting 1,066 people in hospital with COVID-19 and 302 in intensive care.

That’s slightly down from Wednesday, when the province reported 1,106 hospitalizations and 319 people in ICUs.

Ontario also logged 41 new deaths from the virus.

There were 2,404 new cases of COVID-19, but provincial policies limiting access to testing mean that number is likely higher.

Eighty-four long-term care homes, or about 13 per cent of the province’s homes, are currently listed as having active COVID-19 outbreaks.

Ontario isn’t reporting data on COVID-19 cases in schools, but two schools were closed on Wednesday for operational reasons.
