Wednesday’s new cases is the lowest number the province has seen in five days, when Ontario reported 401 new cases.
This drop in number comes the same day the province is expected to share more of its COVID-19 fall preparedness plan.
Premier Doug Ford has already announced that the first part of the strategy will involve a $70-million bill to buy millions of seasonal flu shots.
Toronto, Ottawa and the Peel Region have been the province’s hot spots with the most new cases reported daily.
In efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus, Ottawa’s chief medical officer released new guidelines that now requires anyone who tests positive for COVID-19, or has symptoms, to self isolate right way. Those rules also apply to anyone who has come into close contact of someone who tests positive for the virus or waiting for results.
Under Ontario’s COVID-19 restrictions, 10 people are allowed indoors and 25 people outdoors.
