Today’s data release by Southwestern Public Heatlh of active Covid-19 cases in Oxford and Elgin counties and the city of St. Thomas is another tale of gains and losses. Since yesterday, the total number of cases has dropped from 4 to 3. But there’s been a bit of another redistribution of active cases.

Oxford County sees the resolution of the 2 cases in East Zorra/Tavistock, leaving the county with just 1 active case remaining in Tillsonburg.
