Ontario is reporting 551 people in hospital with COVID-19 and 182 people in ICU.

That's down from 613 hospitalizations and 185 intensive care patients yesterday.

Three more COVID-19 deaths are being reported today.

Provincial data show 1,680 new infections, but Ontario's top doctor has said the actual number is likely 10 times higher than the daily log, since access to PCR testing is restricted.

Data on school closures isn't being logged this week due to the March break.

Ontario is set to lift mask mandates in most public spaces including schools and retail settings tomorrow.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 20, 2022.
