TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 854 new COVID-19 cases today and two more deaths from the virus.
Health Minister Christine Elliott says 474 of the new infections are among people who aren't fully vaccinated, and 31 are in people whose vaccination status isn't known.
The province says 254 people are hospitalized, including 134 in intensive care and 77 on ventilators.
Provincial figures show 86.2 per cent of people aged 12 and older have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, noting the immunization of kids between the ages of five and 11 continues to ramp up.
The latest case numbers are based on 31,444 completed tests.
The results come a day after Canada announced a ban on entry for foreign nationals who travelled through southern Africa due to fears about a new variant called Omicron.
