Another three people are confirmed to have contracted COVID-19 in Ottawa, local public health officials said Sunday. 

The number represents a return to normal after Ottawa Public Health (OPH) reported a spike of 16 cases on Saturday, something it attributed to a reporting delay.

In total, 2,149 cases have been confirmed in the city since the start of the pandemic. Of those, 1,836 people — or roughly 85 per cent of all cases — are considered recovered. 

No deaths were reported again on Sunday. OPH hasn't confirmed a death from the virus for more than two weeks.

There are 50 confirmed active cases of the virus in the city, while four outbreaks continue at city institutions like long-term care facilities. 

Two people are hospitalized, but no one is in intensive care.
