    Ontario Premier Doug Ford, alongside other officials, is expected to deliver an update Monday regarding the province’s ongoing COVID-19 response.

    Ontario reported 1,746 new cases of coronavirus on Monday, bringing the provincial total to 116,492.

    Monday’s case count is a slight increase from Sunday, which saw 1,708 new infections and marks the third largest increase in cases to date. On Saturday, 1,822 cases were recorded and 1,855 on Friday.

    According to Monday’s provincial report, 622 cases were recorded in Toronto — the highest single-day increase, 390 in Peel Region, 217 in York Region, 108 in Durham Region and 74 in Waterloo Region. All other public health units in Ontario reported under 70 new cases.

    On Friday, the premier, Solicitor General Sylvia Jones, Health Minister Christine Elliott and Gen. Rick Hillier met to discuss the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in the province through the taskforce, which Ford said will be the largest vaccine rollout “in a generation” and a “massive logistical undertaking” that Ontario has “never seen.”
