Ontario reports 11 new COVID-19 cases in Ottawa out of more than 200 province-wide

OTTAWA — Public Health Ontario is reporting 11 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Tuesday.

This comes after 11 cases were reported by Ottawa Public Health on Monday.

The province also reported one new case of the delta variant in Ottawa, bringing the city’s total to nine cases since the variant first emerged.

A full local snapshot from Ottawa Public Health is due this afternoon. Figures from OPH often differ from those provided by Public Health Ontario because the two health agencies pull data for their respective daily reports at different times of day.

Across the province, Public Health Ontario reported 296 new cases of COVID-19, but said 80 of those cases are actually from 2020 and were included in a data cleanup from Toronto Public Health. Six new deaths were reported alongside 54 additional deaths from previous months that were added due to provincial data review and data cleaning initiatives.

Another 442 cases across Ontario are considered resolved.

The province removed eight cases from its total for the Eastern Ontario Health Unit’s total on Tuesday. One new case was reported in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Public Health and one new case was reported in the Renfrew County and District Health Unit.
