In a tweet Friday morning, Christine Elliott said Ottawa's 26 new cases are among 134 new cases reported in Ontario.

"The extent of the shortfall will be determined by the length of the response/recovery associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the amount of provincial funding that may be received to offset extraordinary costs", the report notes.

The number of resolved cases sits at 35,074.

These numbers are a slight increase from the past two days, where the province had seen numbers drop under 100.

Three additional deaths were confirmed in Ontario on Friday.

Currently, 78 people are hospitalized in Ontario due to the coronavirus, while 29 are in ICU, and 15 on a ventilator.
