Ontario is reporting 2,939 people in the hospital with COVID-19 and 555 people in intensive care. 

That’s down from 3,091 hospitalized patients and 568 people in ICU on Tuesday. 

The province is also reporting 67 more deaths from the virus. 

There were 3,909 new COVID-19 cases though Public Health Ontario has said the true number is likely higher due to testing policy changes.

The province isn’t reporting data on virus cases and outbreaks in schools but seven schools were reported closed for operational reasons.

Fifty-two per cent of long-term care homes were experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and 40 more deaths were reported among residents over the last two days.
