Ottawa Public Health (OPH) says 11 per cent of all residents over the age of 18 are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, while indicators of the virus spreading in the community continue to trend downward.

The health unit says 20 new cases of COVID-19 are being confirmed in the city on Friday, June 11.

Local hospitalizations due to novel coronavirus are down to 21 with three patients in intensive care. COVID-19-related hospitalization numbers haven't been that low since March 12, when 17 people were fighting the virus and two patients were in ICUs.

Another deadly outbreak has been cleared at a long-term care facility. Between May 10 and June 8, eight residents and five staff members contracted COVID-19 at Villa Marconi and four of them died.

There are still nine healthcare institutions and two childcare centres dealing with COVID-19 outbreaks in Ottawa. OPH says it's also keeping an eye on one community outbreak linked to a distribution facility.

The health unit knows of 363 active cases of COVID-19 in the city.

No new COVID-19-related deaths reported Friday leaves Ottawa's pandemic death toll at 584. The deceased include: one person in their 20s; one in their 30s; eight in their 40s; 23 in their 50s; 70 in their 60s; 110 in their 70s; 203 in their 80s; and 168 in their 90s.

Ottawa's weekly COVID-19 incidence rate is down to 22.2 per 100,000 residents. The local positivity rate is up to 3.9 per cent.

The City of Ottawa has administered 94 per cent of the 663,610 COVID-19 vaccines it's received to date. OPH says 91,122 residents over the age of 18 have had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, which makes up 11 per cent of the adult population. Of the entire city's population, 9 per cent of residents have been fully vaccinated. When it comes to single COVID-19 vaccine doses, 71 per cent of all Ottawa adults and 60 per cent of the total population have had one shot.

There have been 27,379 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus cases in Ottawa (26,432 resolved) since the spring of 2020.

Ontario is reporting 574 new cases of COVID-19, Friday, including one in the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark district, three in Renfrew County and district, and none in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit's region.
