We are expected to learn new COVID-19 numbers for Leeds, Grenville and Lanark today. 

But we do have new vaccination numbers from the health unit. 

LGL District Health is reporting that for those aged five and older, the eligible population, over 93 per cent have their first dose. Nearly 88 per cent have a second dose.
