Ontario reported another 1,855 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday while its labs processed more than 58,000 tests, both single-day records by considerable margins. 

The new cases include 517 in Peel Region, 494 in Toronto, 189 in York Region and 130 in Halton Region. 

They push the seven-day average of daily cases to 1,489, the highest it has been since the first confirmed infection was reported in Ontario in late January. 

The province also recorded 20 more deaths linked to the illness.

More to come.
