For the first time since March, Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is reporting no new cases of COVID-19 and no deaths associated with the virus.

There had been another occurance early in June, where it appeared there had been no new cases, but OPH later said a couple cases had been added and a couple had been dismissed because they didn't belong in its jurisdiction.

Monday's report of zero means that the number of lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa since the start of the pandemic stays at 2,086 and the local death toll remains at 263.

There is still one person in hospital with the virus, and they are in intensive care.

OPH says there are just 40 active cases of COVID-19 in the city, Monday.

There are just four local institutions dealing with outbreaks now, as The Glebe Centre and Welcome House have been cleared. The Glebe Centre had one staff case announced on June 14, while the Welcome House had two staff cases from June 18.
