Algoma Public Health has reported no new hospitalizations today, and 39 new cases of COVID-19, however, that total is likely underestimated due to limitations in who can get tested.

Of the cases that APH has been able to track, 14 are linked to close contact with a known cases, and one is outbreak related.

There are currently 602 active cases of COVID-19, and 11 hospitalizations in the Algoma Public Health region.

498 tests were conducted by Algoma Public Health since the last report, with a positivity rate of eight per cent.

There have been 3,030 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the APH since the beginning of the pandemic.

Since Oct. 1, 2021, 62.5 per cent of COVID-19 related deaths in Algoma were in unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals, and 37.5 per cent were in fully vaccinated individuals. 

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.
