COVID

Leeds, Grenville and Lanark reported one new case of COVID-19 on Thursday but is down to just seven active cases. 

The new case was reported in a man between 20 and 40-years-old on Thursday and one person also recovered from the virus. None of the seven patients in the Tri-County-area are in hospital. 

Ontario reported another 998 new cases and 13 more deaths on Thursday, slightly lower than the 16 deaths reported Wednesday, the highest since mid-June. 

The province completed nearly 35,800 tests over the previous day, higher than the 28,000 recorded Wednesday, but is still well short of the province's 50,000 daily test capacity. 

381 patients in Ontario are in hospital with COVID-19, including 86 in intensive care, and 48 on a ventilator.
