For just the second time since March 2020, Windsor-Essex reported no new COVID-19 cases, another milestone in the pandemic's decline.

The last time the region reported no newly confirmed cases was Oct. 21, though there have been days with a net zero increase because previously confirmed cases were removed from the region's total through data clean-up.

The region's overall case count of 16,843 saw a decline of three cases Tuesday due to the health unit's ongoing data clean-up efforts.

As of Wednesday, there are 16 active COVID-19 cases in Windsor-Essex and eight people are in hospital.

One workplace is in outbreak, a manufacturing facility in Lakeshore.

So far, 60.1 per cent of adults in Windsor-Essex are fully vaccinated while 75.8 per cent have had at least one dose.
