Ontario's Ministry of Health confirms 790 new cases of COVID-19

Officials said one death previously attributed to COVID-19 was unrelated and 90 cases that had been identified as positive were in fact, negative.

Considering the high number of COVID-19 cases in Ottawa, Toronto, Peel, and York Region, Williams recommended people living in these regions should celebrate in alternative ways such as virtual parties, movie night, organize a candy hunt with people living in your household, decorate your front lawn, or carve pumpkins at home.

Nesathurai recommended families do not travel house to house, and recommended families do not hand out candy.

Dr. David Williams says that means the cities of Toronto and Ottawa and the regions of Peel and York.

Get tested if you have symptoms compatible with COVID-19, or if you have been advised of exposure by your local public health unit or through COVID Alert.

There are nine more deaths which brings the provincial total to 3,062.

"In actual fact, this isn't a backlog", Elliot said.

In the last seven days, the region is reporting an average of 142 cases per day, marking an increase of 34 new daily cases.

Two deaths were identified in the last 24 hours and an additional 15 COVID-19 deaths were confirmed between October 14 and October 19. People between 60 and 79 years old represented 104 of the new infections and 94 new cases were from people 19 years old and younger. There have been 1,569 school-related cases since the beginning of September, and they are spread across 518 schools (10 per cent of the schools in Ontario).

Ontario health officials also said Monday that they are closely monitoring case counts in Halton Region, Hamilton, and Eastern Ontario.

260 people in Ontario are now, hospitalized with COVID-19, with 71 in ICU, and 49 in ICU on ventilator.

There are now three active cases on the Island. "I've never seen anything like it", Ford added.
