Eastern Ontario may soon be returning to stricter COVID-19 restrictions, Medical Officer of Health Dr. Paul Roumeliotis says.

The province has capped outdoor gatherings at 25 and indoor get-togethers at 10 in Ottawa, Toronto and the Peel Region.

Similar measures may be imposed in Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry and Prescott-Russell, Dr. Roumeliotis said Thursday, since the western edge of the Eastern Ontario Health Unit's jurisdiction borders on Ottawa.

Meanwhile, a second positive case in South Glengarry has increased the total to eight active cases in Glengarry, according to Eastern Ontario Health Unit figures that were updated at 2:54 p.m. September 17.
