June 11, 2022 coronavirus update for Oakville

This is Oakville’s coronavirus update for Saturday, June 11, 2022, with COVID-19 news from the last week. Two days ago, cumulative COVID-19 cases in Halton surpassed 50,000 people.

Oakville is reporting a new COVID-19 outbreak at Post Inn Village long-term care home; at the Willow Home part of the facility. While two other outbreaks have ended, three others at other retirement/LTC homes in Oakville continue.

There’s a lot of positive news too: Both Oakville and Halton Region reported no deaths in the last week (for the first time this year.) Hospitalizations in Oakville and all Halton hospitals are down dramatically this week: between 60-85%, with OTMH going from 11 patients to only two.

As of today, June 11, Ontario has ended its mandatory mask rules on public transit and in most hospitals. Halton Healthcare says, even as the provincial rule ends, they will be keeping mask mandates in place for staff and visitors.

Province-wide outbreaks are down another 25% this week. Ontario is currently reporting its lowest ICU occupancy in almost a year, even as the total is up 2% today. 18 months into local vaccination efforts, a cumulative 12.6 million Ontarians have received at least their first dose of vaccine.

While down in Halton and Ontario, active cases nationally have gone up this week. More than 35 million Canadians have now received at least their first dose of vaccine, and a cumulative 60 million PCR COVID-19 tests have been conducted in Canada since the start of the pandemic. Global cases surpass 530 million people.

Fully vaccinated travellers, regardless of citizenship, no longer need a negative COVID-19 test result to enter the country. While tests are no longer needed for fully vaccinated travellers (or those under age 4), proof of vaccination is still required for all air, train and cruise ship travel either arriving in or within the country’s borders.

**Vaccine booking: Fourth doses (second booster doses) of vaccine are now available for anyone in Halton age 60 and up and any indigenous peoples and those in their household age 18 and up.

Halton continues to book first and second-dose vaccinations for all residents age five and older, plus third-dose boosters for all adults age 18 and up.

First, second and third doses for those 12 and up are available on a walk-in basis throughout the Region. All vaccines approved for use in Canada effectively protect you against COVID-19 and all known variants of concern.
