Canada reported a total of 239,143 COVID-19 cases and 10,202 deaths as of Monday afternoon, according to CTV.

The Ontario government reportedly will unveil a new tiered system for COVID-19 restrictions that will give municipalities and public health units clear criteria for when to impose lockdowns and closures.
