No new deaths were reported on Saturday. 267 Ottawa residents have died of COVID-19.

The number of known active cases in Ottawa rose to its highest level since July 31 in Saturday's report.

Ottawa Public Health is aware of 268 active cases of COVID-19, 13 more than what was reported on Friday.

The number of resolved cases rose by 14 to 2,692, or 83.4 per cent of all known 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.
