The 51 new COVID-19-related deaths bring the total number of fatalities to 5,340.

A provincial stay-at-home order is also in effect.

As of Friday, the province says it has administered 189,090 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Another 51 people have died across Ontario from the novel coronavirus, the province said.

Where were Ontario's new COVID-19 cases found?

Updated local figures from Ottawa Public Health are due at around 12:30 p.m. Figures from OPH and from the province often differ due to data reporting times, OPH has said. There are more than 1,100 active, lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the region, with the majority of those in Simcoe County.

The current lockdown in eastern Ontario went into effect december 26, and is now scheduled to last until February 11.
