The number of new COVID-19 cases in Durham Region exploded to 43 Wednesday – more than triple Tuesday’s 13 new cases – but the number of people in hospital with the virus remained at four.

The new case load appears to be balanced across the region’s major centres, with Clarington recording nine and Pickering and Oshawa seven each. Ajax and Whitby reported six cases each, as did, surprisingly, Scugog. Brock Township continued its streak of COVID-free days with another zero day.

There are 149 active cases in Durham.

There are still three long-term care homes with declared outbreaks, as well as one workplace outbreak and five in local schools and day care centres.

Monseigneur Le Cleary Catholic School in Courtice remains closed to in-school learning.
