Ontario reported 158 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, down from the 169 cases reported the previous day.

Today’s case count marks the 11th straight day the province has seen new coronavirus infections in the three-digit range.

The rolling seven day average of new cases has gone from 113 a week ago up to 138.

Toronto reported 49 new cases with 44 in Peel Region, 21 in Ottawa and 16 in York Region.

Two new deaths were also reported, raising the provincial toll to 2,813.

The province now has 43,161 confirmed cases, with 90.3 per cent considered resolved.

Provincial officials say 28,955 tests were processed in the last 24 hour period.

The province will not provide an update on daily cases on Monday due to the statutory holiday. Instead the government will report Monday’s coronavirus numbers on Tuesday.
