Ottawa continues its streak of reporting new case numbers below 100 as hospitalization numbers also continue their downwards trend.

Ottawa Public Health is reporting 91 new cases of the virus in the city, and five fewer people in the hospital (meaning hospitalizations are now down to 64 patients).

This is the sixth day this month Ottawa has reported new case numbers in the double digits.

On top of that, no new deaths have been recorded in the city, keeping the local death toll at 535.

Active cases have dropped by 34 people and now stand at 1,093.

Resolved cases, on the other hand, have increased by 125, bringing the total number of resolved cases to 24,406.

The number of patients in the ICU remains at 22.

No new outbreaks have been recorded anywhere in the city — not in healthcare institutions, childcare centres, schools or within the community.

The incidence rate remains at 67.9 per 100,000 and the positivity rate at 6.5 per cent.

However, 43 more variants of concerns and mutations have been recorded in Ottawa, bringing the total number of cases over time to 5,711.

Thirty of the new variant cases that have been reported include the U.K. variant; 20 involve the South African variant; and five the Brazilian variant.

According to the Ontario government, the Eastern Ontario Health Unit is reporting 10 new cases of the virus within its area — that’s down from the 22 reported on Saturday.

The Renfrew County and District Health Unit has experienced an increase of six new cases within its health unit.

The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, however, is reporting a dip in new cases to two, from nine.

For a full week straight, Ontario has recorded new COVID-19 case numbers below 3,000, with 2,199 new cases on Sunday.

Of the new cases, 114 are among teens ages 14 to 17; 92 are among children ages four to eight; and 84 are among kids ages nine to 13.

These new case numbers bring the total number of cases since the pandemic started to 509,316.

Since Saturday, 3,079 more cases have resolved.

Thirty new deaths have also been added to the tally, bringing the provincial death toll to 8,485.

There are now 714 people in hospital with the virus and 509 on a ventilator.

Since yesterday, the provincial government reports completing 33,142 tests. Of those tests, 6.8 per cent were positive — that’s up from the 6.2 per cent reported the day before.
