Doug Ford

Premier Doug Ford says there are no plans to scale back the re-opening plans of any Ontario regions that have seen case spikes of COVID-19.

Ford says the new cases don't amount to a serious spike and he will rely on the advice of the province's health-care command table in making any decisions related to the COVID-19 recovery plan.

Niagara, Ottawa and Sudbury reported fresh cases of the novel coronavirus in recent days.

Niagara reported 21 new cases Tuesday, Ottawa had 25 and Sudbury reported eight on Monday, seven of them in people under 19.

Windsor-Essex, which has seen a number of outbreaks on farms, reported 22 more cases, while Toronto reported six.
