Following six days of less than 200 new cases of COVID-19 being recorded in the province, Ontario is now seeing a slight uptick.

Ontario Health reporting 206 cases today, and an additional 31 deaths. 

Health Minister Christine Elliott says it's a 0.6 per cent increase. 

She adds "while it is the first time the province is reporting a daily new case count above 200 in six days, we shouldn't draw too many conclusions from one day's data."

125 of today's 206 new cases are from the Toronto and Peel Regions. 

Elliott says hospitalizations remains relatively stable, with ICU admissions and vented patients both down.
