Ontario reported 257 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, 177 of which were confirmed by the Windsor-Essex public health unit following targeted testing of migrant farm workers over the weekend. Premier Doug Ford says that further testing is likely to find more cases at other farms in the region. This is part of the government’s plan announced last week for targeted testing. Testing is expected to expand to farm workers in Niagara, Haldimand-Norfolk, and Brantford. As of now, there has been a total of 34,911 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario since late January, with about 86.5% resolved, and around 2,050 cases remaining active.
