The number has fallen by a third since Friday, with the health unit reporting 10 people hospitalized for COVID-19 on Monday. The number within an intensive care unit remained stable at two.

Another stable figure was the number of related deaths, which remains at 226.

EOHU’s reported test positivity rate has fallen two percent to 10.3 percent since Friday. It hasn’t been this low since March 25.

None of the detailed data from Ontario on case counts, active cases in COVID-19 outbreaks at long-term care centers, or absenteeism from school had been updated at the time of writing, with the last release of these records being Friday. The Standard Freeholder continues to track this data, which is available online here.

EOHU did not add any new care homes to its COVID-19 outbreak list on Monday, despite the weekend’s elimination of outbreaks at Chartwell McConnell in Cornwall, Champlain long-term care center in L’Orignal and Heartwood Long-Term Care in Cornwall. That leaves eight such eruptions active across the region.

Regarding COVID-19 immunizations, since its update on Friday, EOHU reported an additional 532 doses administered in the region, bringing the running total to 479,319 as of January 12, 2021.
