At the same time, tougher COVID-19 restrictions are taking effect today in five Ontario regions in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.

Premier Doug Ford and Education Minister Stephen Lecce announced on Thursday that targeted voluntary asymptomatic testing will begin in schools in Toronto, York Region, Peel Region and Ottawa for the next four weeks in a bid to better track how the virus is spreading in and around schools. That age group leads the province in COVID-19 infections with a cumulative case count of 43,126.

The 1,707 new infections represent a slight decrease over Monday's total when 1,746 cases were logged.

The rolling seven-day average now stands at 1,670 cases, up from 1,570 on Monday.

Another 34,000 test specimens remain under investigation.

Furthermore, based on its official website, one of Paul's goals was to finish his education in marine biology. On Thanksgiving, she posted another snap of the pair, when she looked to be only two or three years old.

Seven deaths related to the novel coronavirus were recorded in the previous day, raising the province's COVID-19 death toll to 3,663.

As a result, the per cent positivity rate after accounting for errors and duplicate tests was 5.1 per cent across the province.

"This means that there is now a higher percentage of people who test positive for COVID-19 in the community compared to in this school setting".

A letter sent home to parents on Sunday had first reported 19 students and one staff member; however, according to a TDSB spokesperson, that was a false positive, bringing the total to 21 active cases.

Of those, 185 are in intensive care and 112 of those are breathing with the help of a ventilator.
