New COVID-19 cases under 400 for 5th straight day as testing numbers increase
Ontario Health reported 323 new case of COVID-19 today, the 5th straight day with numbers under 400.
There were 17 new deaths reported, which is the lowest number this month.
Ontario also reported an increase in testing with 20,640 tests completed yesterday.
It marks the first time testing has been up over 20,000.
Premier Doug Ford has been promoting testing all week and announced further efforts to expand testing efforts in the province yesterday.
The new COVID-19 testing strategy will see mobile testing units deployed to virus hot spots.
Testing is already under way for staff and inmates at some correctional facilities, staff in hospitals that have had outbreaks, first responders in Toronto and their families, and L-C-B-O workers.
The province says community testing will also start next week in places with a high number of coronavirus cases.
It says a van or bus could go to affected workplaces or employees could be directed to assessment centres.
