The province says 197 of today's new cases are in Toronto, 155 in Peel Region, 94 in York Region and 66 in Ottawa.
Today's figures come from nearly 40,900 completed tests, down from 44,700 the day before.
This weekend the public health unit in York Region, north of Toronto, imposed tighter restrictions on local long-term care homes after an upward trend in COVID-19 cases there.
York Region will also join the COVID-19 hot spots of Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa in moving back to a modified Stage 2 of pandemic protocols on Monday.
The modified Stage 2 includes the closure of gyms and movie theatres, and a ban on indoor dining in restaurants or bars.
Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa reverted to the modified Stage 2 on Oct. 10.
Ontario now has a total of 64,371 cases of COVID-19, including 55,371 that are considered resolved and 3,046 deaths.
