Ontario reports fewer than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases Tuesday; 18 in Ottawa

Ontario health officials are reporting 18 new COVID-19 cases in Ottawa.

The figure is among 975 new cases of COVID-19 reported across Ontario, ending a streak of more than 1,000 new cases per day in the province. Ontario also reported 12 new deaths and 1,002 newly resolved cases on Tuesday.

Daily case counts are often lower on Tuesdays.

No new cases of any variants of concern were reported in Ottawa on Tuesday. To date, the province says Ottawa has seen a total of eight cases of the B.1.1.7 variant (UK) and one case of the B.1.351 variant (South Africa).

An updated local snapshot from Ottawa Public Health is due later today. Daily case counts from OPH often differ from those from the province because of different data collection times.

This story will be updated. CTV News will have the latest as it becomes available.
