Ottawa Public Health confirms zero new cases of COVID-19 in Tuesday report
OTTAWA -- Ottawa Public Health is confirming zero new cases of COVID-19 in the city on Tuesday.
The updated figures on the COVID-19 dashboard show 2,086 cases – which is the same number reported in Monday's update.
The OPH dashboard reports a net change in cumulative COVID-19 figures, as the public health agency sometimes removes cases from its total that are found to be in people who are not residents of Ottawa.
In an email to CTV News Ottawa, OPH said, "As of 2:00 p.m. on June 29, 2020, OPH is investigating 2,086 lab-confirmed cases (0 new cases since yesterday’s report)."
The latest figures are always based on information pulled at 2 p.m. the previous day.
This is the second time in June that the COVID-19 dashboard showed a net-zero change in total cases, but on June 17, OPH confirmed it had added two cases since the previous report, but removed two cases as well.
No new deaths were reported Tuesday. The death toll in Ottawa remains at 263.
