The Ontario Science Table will release new COVID-19 speculation as cases increase


The COVID-19 Science Table is expected to publish its modelling at 11 a.m.

Settings where proof of vaccination is still required for entry — including nightclubs, strip clubs and bathhouses — will not see their capacity limits lifted on Monday as expected, and will instead have to wait until mid-December.

Yesterday, the seven-day average of new COVID-19 cases sat at 532, compared to 383 a week earlier.

Dr. Kieran Moore, chief medical officer of health, said he made the decision because of rising case counts and test positivity rates.
