With 16,360 tests performed, the positivity rate was 10.7 percent—the lowest positivity rate in over two months. There were more than 29,000 vaccinations administered. 2,160 new cases were reported-an undercount due to testing limitations.

ICU cases declined by one to “less than six.” However Hamilton is now reporting 34 outbreaks compared to 30 the previous day. There were no deaths reported.

Halton will not report again until Thursday, as they have cut back to two reports a week.
