Ontario is reporting fewer than 1,000 people in hospital with COVID-19 for the first time since late December, though not all hospitals report that data on the weekends.
The province reported Sunday 842 people hospitalized and 281 in intensive care due to COVID-19.
That’s down from 1,056 in hospital and 324 in ICU one week ago.
Ontario is reporting nine more COVID-19 deaths.
There are 2,001 new COVID-19 cases being reported, but provincial policies limiting access to testing mean that number is likely higher.
Wastewater data being monitored by Ontario’s science advisory table suggests that COVID-19 activity in the province is starting to rise again, after consistently declining since early January.
