Ontario reported 3,295 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, which is the highest the province has seen since mid-January, said associate chief medical officer of health Dr. Barbara Yaffe. This brings the provincial total to 374,112.

She explained Ontario’s health-care system is strained amid the third wave of COVID-19 in the province.

Thursday’s case count is higher than Wednesday’s, which saw 3,215 new infections. On Tuesday, 3,065 new cases were recorded and 2,938 on Monday. It also marks the highest daily increase since Jan. 17.

A stay at home order began at 12:01 a.m. Thursday across Ontario and will remain in effect for four weeks. Officials said it means residents must stay home except for essential reasons, including going grocery shopping, picking up prescription medication, accessing health care, going to work when it cannot be done remotely and exercising close to home.
