COVID UPDATE: NOTL has no active cases again

Despite COVID numbers continuing to climb in the province, Niagara-on-the-Lake is back to zero active cases.

“COVID numbers in the province have been trending upwards,” Lord Mayor Betty Disero said during Monday's council meeting.

However, she said as of last Thursday Niagara's acting chief medical officer of health Dr. Mustafa Hirji doesn't believe Niagara is heading toward reverting to Stage 2 of recovery.

However, that was “before the province started hitting 900 and 1,000 cases a day,” she told NOTL council during her COVID update.

NOTL has had 49 total COVID cases so far. An employee at Ruffino's Pasta Bar & Grill who tested positive more than a week ago has recovered and the restaurant has fully reopened.
