  • Just two new cases of COVID-19 in Midwestern Ontario Tuesday

In a letter Monday to the federal ministers of health and public safety, Ontario says it has already closed its boundaries with Quebec and Manitoba to non-essential travel, but there are no measures in place to protect provinces from the spread of COVID-19 variants through interprovincial air travel, an area of federal responsibility.

Ontario's Science Advisory Table published new research last week that put forward a strategy to divert half of the province's vaccine supply to 74 neighbourhoods with the highest rates of COVID-19 infection.

In the last 24-hour period, officials said that 94,819 doses of the vaccine were administered to residents in the province.

Today's seven day average for new cases is 4,051 compared to 4,348 a week ago.

Locally, there are 1,044 new cases in Toronto, 673 in Peel, 452 in York Region, 171 in Durham and 150 in Ottawa. Of those patients, 875 are being treated in intensive care units and 589 are breathing with the assistance of a ventilator.

The federal government said the Canadian Armed Forces would deploy up to three teams of nurses and medical technicians to help Ontario's overburdened health-care system, much as it did during the pandemic's first wave.

According to the latest provincial numbers, there are 2,987 additional cases of the B.1.1.7 variant, 20 additional cases of the P.1 variant and 37 additional cases of the B.1351 variant.

Child care workers in licensed child care settings will be eligible to book as of Thursday, April 29.

"Ontario's child care workers are making a difference and supporting working parents at this critical time", Stephen Lecce, Ontario's minister of education, said in a statement accompanying the news release.

Public health units in both Toronto and Peel introduced the rules, which allow them to shutter establishments where five or more workers have tested positive for COVID-19 over a 14 day period.

Peel announced its first closures on Saturday, partially shutting two Amazon fulfilment centres.
