Only 404 new cases were confirmed by the province Monday morning, down from 460 the day previous, but the downward momentum Ontario had been experiencing does appear to have stalled.

The province had been seeing daily increases of 400-plus cases which had prompted public health officials to put off any expansion in people's social bubble beyond their immediate household.

Ontario is reporting 287 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, marking the first time in more than two weeks that the number of new cases has been lower than 300.

Another 331 cases are considered resolved, with the recovery rate remaining at 76-percent.

"We are extending these emergency orders to protect the health and safety of all individuals and families as we begin to gradually and safely reopen our province", said Premier Doug Ford.

"Given what happened with the numbers of people coming down with COVID in the last few days, along with what has happened over this past weekend with large groups of people coming together in Trinity Bellwoods and other parks, Dr. Williams is reluctant to move forward with that right away", she said.

On Sunday, Ford asked that more Ontario residents to get tested even if they are not showing symptoms, so the province can have a better understanding of the virus. To date, health officials have conducted more than 629,000 COVID-19 tests.

Ford said volunteers are checking in on neighbours, doing food errands and helping in whatever they can to assist in an Ontario spirit keeping with what it means to be a Canadian through generosity and selflessness.

Currently Toronto has confirmed 10,035 cases of the novel coronavirus as well as 759 deaths.

The number of people hospitalized is 878 - of those, 148 are in the ICU and 104 of which are in ICU on a ventilator. A closer look at the data shows a disproportionate share of those new cases is found in the five GTA public health units.

He said Ontario will target specific postal codes that are hot spots, such as parts of Peel Region and Toronto, as well as the Windsor-Essex area.

"I get it, it's a handsome day out, everyone wants to get out and have a great time. but the images I saw, we just can't have that right now, it's just too many people too close".
