Province reporting 1,087 new COVID-19 cases, 13 deaths

 

The province is reporting 1,087 new COVID-19 cases today (Sunday, February 21) and 13 deaths linked to the virus.

There are 344 new cases in Toronto, 156 in Peel, 122 (Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon) in York Region, 26 in Hamilton, and 20 in Halton.

Since yesterday, 1,140 more cases are considered resolved and nearly 48,200 additional tests have been completed.

The province recently reached a milestone of over half a million vaccine doses — as of 8:00 p.m. yesterday, 556,533 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ontario.

This past week, various regions in Ontario reopened under the province’s new framework guidelines.

“A return to the Framework is not a return to normal,” said Health Minister Christine Elliott. “Help stop the spread of COVID-19 by continuing to follow public health advice.”

The shutdown, stay-at-home order, and all existing public health and workplace safety measures will be maintained in Peel, Toronto, and North Bay Parry Sound until at least March 8.

Today’s full case data is available at the province’s website.
