Tests completed: 11,930

Provincewide test positivity rate: 1 per cent

Patients in ICU with COVID-related illnesses: 131, with 79 needing a ventilator to breathe

Death toll: 9,316

Vaccinations: 65,920, the fewest reported on a Monday since May 3. Roughly 66.7 per cent of Ontarians aged 12 and older have had two shots of vaccine
