That is unchanged since the last report of the figures on Wednesday.

The Brant County Health Unit on Friday reported 11 new COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, but that number is unlikely to be reported due to limited testing.

There are currently 99 active cases in the community, but even that number is likely underreported.
