Public Health Sudbury and Districts (PHSD) reports no new cases of COVID-19 for today, July 29.

PHSD also said there are now seven active cases being monitored by public health officials.  

Also, since the PHSD began tracking COVID-19 cases, there have been 2,183 total COVID-19 cases confirmed locally. PHSD also said 2,176 of those cases have now been resolved.

PHSD also reports general demographics each day about the people who are becoming infected.

There are also now 999 cases that are "confirmed or presumed to be" for variants of concern. This number has not changed since Tuesday.

Since the pandemic was declared in March 2020, 31 people in the region have died as a result of contracting COVID-19.

Epidemiological data showed that the majority of local cases are persons in the 20 to 39 age category with 716 total cases (no change).

The next highest group number was 547 cases for the 40 to 59 age group (no change).

The next highest number was 523 cases for the 19 and under age group (no change).

Seniors in the 60 to 79 age group amounted to 302 cases total (no change), and people aged 80 and over are currently the lowest category with 95 cases (no change).

There were also no cases reported in the "unspecified category".

The numbers above may not completely correspond with the daily case count because PHSD does not always report changes on the day they occur.

With respect to COVID-19 testing, 268,466 tests have been performed in the PHSD region as of July 29, an increase of 348 since the last PHSD test report.

As for local vaccinations, PHSD reported a cumulative total of 231,983 vaccines given in the entire PHSD area. There are also 102,496 local residents who are now fully vaccinated.  

PHSD has also reported there are no current outbreaks declared in any local settings.

Also, at Sudbury's Health Sciences North, as of July 29 there are no admitted patients with confirmed COVID-19 at the hospital, said the HSN website. That person is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). In addition to this there are three admitted patients "being tested" for COVID-19. HSN said one of the patients being tested has been admitted to the ICU at this time. 

On the provincial COVID-19 register today, the Ontario government daily website reported 218 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases across the province. Also today, the province reported three new deaths had occurred in the past 24 hours.
