OTTAWA -- Ottawa Public Health is reporting 61 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Monday, with one new death from the disease.

According to Ottawa Public Health's COVID-19 dashboard, there have been 3,335 total laboratory-confirmed instances of COVID-19 in Ottawa since the first case was confirmed on March 11.
The death toll from COVID-19 now stands at 268.

The number of known active cases in Ottawa rose to above 300 in Monday's update.
OPH is aware of 334 active cases of COVID-19 in the city, up from 281 on Sunday.
Seven existing cases are now considered resolved, bringing the total recovery rate to 2,733, or 81.9 per cent of all cases to date.
The number of active cases is the number of total, laboratory-confirmed cases minus the numbers of resolved cases and deaths. A case is considered resolved 14 days after known symptom onset or positive test result and the case is not a fatality.
Ottawa Public Health continues to say the actual number of infections in the city could be between five and 30 times greater than the number of laboratory-confirmed infections.

Under provincial guidelines, a COVID-19 outbreak in a school is defined as two or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in students and/or staff in a school with an epidemiological link, within a 14-day period, where at least one case could have reasonably acquired their infection in the school (including transportation and before or after school care).
