As provincial numbers skyrocket, Halton see 15 new COVID-19 cases

Halton Region has 15 new confirmed cases of the coronavirus as Ontario reaches a record number of cases across the province.

Premier Doug Ford said today the province has 700 confirmed cases, breaking the record of 640 reported when the virus first hit in early April.

“We know we are in the second wave,” the Premier said adding we don’t know how bad this second wave will be.

While Toronto reports 344 new cases, neighbouring Peel Region indicates 144 new transmissions. While the numbers in Halton have risen, the increase has not been as dramatic as those seen in other parts of the province.

The breakdown in Halton shows 85 active cases in Oakville, 39 in Burlington, 28 in Milton and 19 in Halton Hills.

Billings Court Manor and Christian and Missionary Alliance, both in Burlington, have cases but the number is not known and the cases involve staff members, not residents.
