Ontario is reporting 2,417 new cases of COVID-19 today and 102 deaths linked to the virus.

The new case count is up slightly from yesterday's total of 2,359.

Public health officials in southwestern Ontario say a male teen who worked in a London-area long-term care home is among those who have recently died after contracting the virus.

A spokesman for the Middlesex-London Health Unit says they can't provide the exact age or any other details about him, but added he is the youngest person in the county to have died of COVID-19.
