111 new coronavirus cases, 1 death in Ontario; total cases at 36,950

The Star's tally includes some patients reported as "probable" COVID-19 cases, which means they have symptoms, travel history or contacts that indicate they likely have the disease, but haven't yet received a positive test from a lab.

That is the lowest number of new cases since March 25th.

"Our success in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and getting Ontario to a place where we are ready to reopen most of the province is a testament to the hard work of business owners, individuals and families right across the province", Premier Doug Ford said when he announced the reopening move earlier this week during a press conference. There were also nine more deaths related to COVID-19 reported by the province.

Ontario completed more than 16,744 tests for the novel coronavirus over the previous 24 hours.

Ontario is reporting 111 new cases of COVID-19 in the province.

According to Health Minister Christine Elliot, 28 of Ontario's 34 public health units are reporting five or fewer cases, with 21 of them reporting no new cases at all.

Several regions across Ontario have entered Stage 3 of the province's reopening plan allowing almost all businesses to finally open their doors, except in the Toronto area and a few other regions. Social circles will remain limited to 10 people, meaning larger gatherings will still require physical distancing measures, such as maintaining a two-metre distance between attendees.

6,889 people are 60 to 79.

The province notes that not all cases have a reported age or gender.

The numbers of people in hospital, in intensive care and on ventilators because of the virus all increased slightly.

The report notes that the sharp increase in hospitalizations was due to a number of hospitals' delayed inputting of weekend numbers into the system. Seven health-care workers in long-term care homes have died.

In long-term care homes, there have been 5,540 reported cases with 1,729 deaths among residents.

The ministry also indicated there are now 76 active cases among long-term care residents and 150 active cases among staff.
