The Windsor Essex County Health Unit announced 1,108 new cases of COVID-19 in Windsor and Essex County from over the weekend. The Health Unit does not report case counts and statistics on weekends but provides a weekend summary.

NOTE: The Health Unit stresses that due to the recent surge in Omicron cases and changes in eligibility for testing, testing capacity is limited and case, contact, and outbreak management has been modified to focus on high-risk settings. As a result, they say case counts are an underestimate of the true number of individuals with COVID-19 in Windsor-Essex.

Of the 1,108 new cases:

  • 515 were reported on January 15th

Total overall cases increased from 30,638 on Friday January 14th to 31,746 on Monday January 17th.
