Ontario confirms 809 new COVID cases today

The most active cases are seen among the 20-29 age group with 1,477 across the province.

Before the recent stretch, the province had not reported more than 500 cases since May 2.

The numbers come on the first day of the province's new measures to curb the consistent climb of cases in those areas, including closing gyms, movie theatres and casinos and suspending indoor dining at bars and restaurants.

The new restrictions come as Ontario marked a record 939 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday, a lot of them in Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa.

There were 809 new infections of COVID-19 reported across Ontario on Saturday, with almost half in Toronto. The rules will be a "modified" Stage 2 according to CTV News.

The province processed 44,298 tests since Friday, bringing the total test count to 4,350,323 since the pandemic started. That means 85 per cent of cases have cleared.

There are 5,754 active, lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario, including 213 patients hospitalized with the coronavirus with 48 COVID patients in intensive care and 29 on ventilators.

The province said in its daily pandemic update on Saturday that two women in Winnipeg - one in her 80s and another in her 90s - had died since the last update on Friday.

Canada's chief public health officer says the spread of COVID-19 seems to be shifting towards seniors, while the hardest-hit provinces scramble to avoid a worst-case scenario for the second wave.

The Outaouais regional health authority has confirmed there has been an outbreak at the agency's COVID-19 shelter for homeless people inside the Robert-Guertin Arena. Both regions remain in the "orange" level of restrictions under the province's COVID-19 plan. There have been 66 new hospitalizations reported in the last two days and 11 of those patients are in intensive care.
