The province is reporting 2,584 new COVID-19 cases today (May 15) and 24 more deaths linked to the disease.
There are 689 new cases in Toronto, 584 in Peel, 252 in York Region, 157 in Durham, 115 in Hamilton, and 91 in Halton.
Since yesterday, 3,063 more cases are considered resolved and over 42,300 more tests completed.
The province recently announced that the current stay-at-home order will be extended to June 2, essentially shutting down any outdoor activities that were anticipated for the upcoming Victoria Day long-weekend as Ontario health officials believe gatherings during the holiday will contribute to the spread of COVID-19.
“If we manage the next few weeks I think we can have a good summer,” said Premier Doug Ford.
6,925,232 total doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ontario.
According to Health Minister Christine Elliott, Ontario reached a new record of over 150,000 vaccine doses administered in a single day on Friday, May 14.
“Thank you to our incredible health care partners whose hard work has helped us come this far,” Elliott said.
Today’s full case data is available at the province’s website.
