TORONTO – The seemingly drastic steps by the Ford Government in putting Toronto, Ottawa, and Peel Region into a modified stage two shutdown appears to have made an impact.
Ontario reported 649 new COVID-19 cases Saturday. This was down from the Friday all-time high of 939 new positive tests for COVID-19.
There were 140 new cases in Toronto, this is down more than half from Saturday’s count of 358.
Ontario is reporting 649 cases of #COVID19 as over 44,100 tests were completed. Locally, there are 157 new cases in Peel, 140 in Toronto, 87 in York Region and 54 in Ottawa. There are 705 more resolved cases.

The Ontario Government reports that 217 people are in hospital with COVID-19. 51 of those cases are for people who are in intensive care and 32 people are on ventilators.
The goal of flattening the curve continues.
The real test of the new measures imposed on Friday will come as the reports come in from Sunday and holiday Monday.
