Ontario science table to publish new COVID-19 projections today
Published March 17, 2022 at 7:17 am
Ontario’s expert pandemic advisers are set to release new COVID-19 projections on Thursday (March 17).
The Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table said its latest modelling on the disease will be published at noon.
The projections are expected as the province prepares to drop most of its COVID-19 public health measures.
Capacity limits and proof-of-vaccination rules have already been dropped in most spaces and masks will no longer be required in many settings as of March 21.
Masks will still be required in high-risk settings like long-term care homes and hospitals, and on public transit, until the end of April.
The science table has had to rely on metrics like wastewater surveillance, test positivity and mobility data to model for possible COVID-19 trends since the province cut back on PCR testing late last year.
