A third migrant worker in Ontario with COVID-19 has died.
The Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit says the farm in their region currently has 199 infected migrant workers and 18 other people associated with the farm who tested positive for COVID-19.
Two other migrant workers have died due to COVID-19 in the Windsor region since the start of the pandemic.
All regions of Ontario except for Toronto, Peel and Windsor-Essex entered Stage 2 of the province’s phased reopening plan on June 19.
The second stage includes restaurant patios, hair salons and swimming pools. Child-care centres across Ontario can also reopen.
Meanwhile, the limit on social gatherings increased from five to 10 provincewide and can resume visiting loved ones in long-term care homes, as long as they test negative for COVID-19.
The Ontario government says students will likely return to school in September with a mix of in-class and remote learning, though boards will develop various scenarios, depending on how COVID-19 is spreading at that point. Premier Doug Ford said there won’t be a one-size-fits-all approach in schools, but parents provincewide will have the option of sending their children back to class or keeping them learning remotely.
Ontario reported another 175 cases of COVID-19 and 11 new deaths related to the virus on Sunday.
The daily report comes after a slight uptick in new cases the previous day, when the province reported more than 200 new cases.
The total number of confirmed cases now stands at 33,476, and the death toll is at 2,606.
The Ministry of Health has marked more than 85 per cent of cases as resolved.
There are currently 286 people in hospital, with 86 people in intensive care and 59 using a ventilator.
