Algoma Public Health is reporting two deaths and 67 new confirmed cases of COVID-19, though the case number may be an underestimation due to limits on who can be tested.

APH ran 370 tests with a positivity rate of 18.1 per cent.

There are 392 active cases in the region, up from 372 at the last report, and 47 cases were resolved.

There are currently eight people in hospital with COVID-19, three of whom were admitted due to COVID-19 related reasons.

There is one person in ICU with COVID-19 in the region.

Of those eligible, 84.6 per cent of people in the Algoma Public Health region have received at least two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Note: As of Dec. 31, 2021, the province has limited COVID-19 PCR testing to the highest risk populations. Furthermore, some people with mild or asymptomatic infection may not seek testing. Algoma Public Health states that the numbers of confirmed cases are an underestimate of the actual number of people with COVID-19 in the Algoma region.
