Ontario is reporting 203 new cases of COVID-19 and about a quarter of them are in the capital, according to Minister of Health Christine Elliott.
She tweeted Tuesday morning, "Today's uptick is the result of localized increases: there are 43 of new cases in Ottawa, 57 in Peel and 24 more in Windsor-Essex."
And the majority of the new infections are in young people.
"Looking at the ages of today's new cases, 116 of them or 57% are 39 years old or younger," says Elliott.
The minister says, although it is just one day of data, it is still concerning.
"Ontarians of all ages need to continue to adhere to public health guidelines: maintain only one social circle of 10 people, physically distance with anyone outside of it and wear a face covering when doing so is a challenge," adds Elliott.
There were 92 resolved cases newly reported in Ontario on Tuesday, meaning new cases have outpaced newly resolved cases for multiple days in a row.
The province recorded just one new COVID-19-related death.
