Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is reporting a few new outbreaks of COVID-19 in the city as it records another local death due to the virus.

A person in their 80s is the latest Ottawa COVID-19 victim, according to OPH on Tuesday, November 2. The city's pandemic death toll is up to 604, and includes: one person in their 20s; one in their 30s; eight in their 40s; 30 in their 50s; 74 in their 60s; 113 in their 70s; 207 in their 80s; and 170 in their 90s.

The health unit says it's monitoring a new COVID-19 outbreak in The Ottawa Hospital's A5 and B5 units, affecting four patients and three staff members. There are also new outbreaks at Barrhaven Public School and Immaculata High School.

Overall, there are three ongoing healthcare facility-related COVID-19 outbreaks in Ottawa, 11 school outbreaks, two outbreaks at childcare centres and one community outbreak linked to a restaurant.

OPH is confirming 20 new cases of COVID-19 in the city, Tuesday. There have been 177 new local cases in the last seven days and 115 Delta variant cases in the last 30 days.

The health unit knows of 188 active cases of the virus in Ottawa.

There are 11 people in local hospitals with COVID-19, one of whom is in intensive care.

OPH says 90 per cent of residents over the age of 12 have had at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine and 87 per cent have had both necessary to be considered immunized.

The rate of infection among Ottawa's unvaccinated vaccine-eligible population is nine times higher than it is for the fully vaccinated population. The local rate of infection per 100,000 residents for those vaccinated against the virus is at 9.1, whereas the rate for those unvaccinated (or vaccinated with one dose under 14 days) is 80.7. The rate per 100,000 residents for those who are waiting for their second shot is 40.2.

Residents being tested for COVID-19 are seeing positive results 1.5 per cent of the time.

Ontario is reporting 331 new COVID-19 cases and seven deaths from the virus on Tuesday. The numbers are based on 20,148 tests. Health Minister Christine Elliott says 195 of the new cases are in people not fully vaccinated or people with an unknown vaccination status. 

There have been 30,903 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa (30,111 resolved) since March of 2020.
