Ontario’s COVID-19 caseload rose by less than 100 for the fourth day in a row, local count went up by one

An Essa Township woman represents the only caseload addition locally

That makes four days in a row.

Public Health Ontario is reporting 95 new cases of COVID-19 across the province on Thursday. While it is the highest number reported this week, it is the fourth time since before the long weekend that the caseload addition was below 100.

Locally, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is reporting just one new case of COVID, that of an Essa Township woman between the ages of 45 and 64.

Province-wide, 29 of Ontario’s 34 public health units are reporting five or fewer cases of COVID-19. Fifteen of those are reporting none at all.

There were double-digit caseload additions noted in Ottawa, Toronto, and Chatham-Kent.
