COVID this week

We’re almost done. There have been three cases of COVID in the past 21 days in Weston.

From the city

I could be wrong, but I think that’s the lowest case count we’ve had since the pandemic started.

Weston has been one of the hardest-hit neighbourhoods in Toronto. More than 12% of the population here caught the virus, the seventh-highest rate of all the neighbourhoods in the city.

COVID this week

COVID continues to slowly retreat in Weston. In the past 21 days, there were 13 cases, down very slightly from last week when there were 15.

Vaccination rates have largely stalled. 55% of eligible residents had had at least one shot, compared to 69% city wide.

The city has launched a vaccination drive in areas of the city that lag. The “Home Stretch Vaccine Push” will bring “20 micro-focused clinics [to] six priority neighbourhoods”, including Weston and Mount Dennis. “The clinics will be conveniently located in and near buildings where residents live and will offer flexible afternoon and evening hours to accommodate frontline workers.”

COVID this week

COVID cases fell again this week, to 15 in the past 21 days. Last week, they had stalled at 21.

Vaccination rates, however, have stalled. 53.7% of residents have initiated vaccinations, up only 0.8% from last week. In Toronto as a whole, 68% of residents have started their shots.

In better news, Westonians are getting their second shots a very good clip, and almost 30% of us have had both.
