The province reported 600 new COVID-19 cases on Monday and four new deaths.

Two of those deaths occurred more than a month ago and are being reported now as part of a data cleanup.

Toronto with 114 new cases, Peel with 84 and York with 67 were the province’s worst-hit regions.

There also were 59 new confirmed cases in Ottawa, according to Public Health Ontario, bringing the city’s total to 28,927 since the pandemic’s start. Due to different data-collection times, those figures may not match those issued later in the day by Ottawa Public Health.
