Ontario is reporting a combined 375 new cases of COVID-19 over the last two days, marking the continuation of a steady upward trend that has now resulted in a return to levels of infection last seen in July.
The Ministry of Health says that there were 190 new cases reported on the holiday Monday and 185 new cases reported today. Both of those numbers represent the highest daily counts since July 24.
The seven-day rolling average of new cases is now 159, up from 116 at this point last week.
Of the new cases reported today, more than half of them are in either Toronto (108 cases) or Peel Region (99 cases) while the rest of the GTA accounted for an additional 52 cases.
