	 		Toronto COVID-19 cases top 500 for first time

Ontario will remain in that level for at least 28 days after November 14.

There are 520 new confirmed cases in Toronto, 395 in Peel, 100 in York Region, 72 in Halton and 50 in Niagara.

If you are not contacted by Public Health, you are not considered a close contact.

The province also reported 159 new COVID-19 cases related to schools, including at least 103 among students.

Mayor John Tory said yesterday that Toronto would impose "an enhanced suite of measures" to curb the spread of the virus as the city transitions to the province's new colour-coded system for pandemic rules.

However, there remained significant COVID-19 creep across the province, with Huron reporting 22 cases, Middlesex-London 20 cases, Waterloo 42 cases and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph 13 cases.

Algoma Public Health has reported Case #56 in the Sault Ste.

Peel is now the only region in the red (control) category of the province's new COVID-19 restrictions system, meaning indoor capacity at local restaurants and gyms is capped at 10 people, among other things.

There are now 534 in Quebec hospitals with the virus, including 82 in intensive care.

There are now 95 outbreaks in long-term care homes, with 647 active resident cases and 399 cases in staff.

Of the 38 deaths, nine occurred over the past 24 hours. Intensive care beds, including those occupied by non-COVID-patients, are running close to capacity.

Over the weekend, B.C.'s chief public health officer issued directives requiring people living in two health regions to cut back on their social interactions in order to slow the rising COVID-19 case count.
