Waterloo Public Health announced 41 new coronavirus positive tests, bringing the total number of COVID-19 cases in the area to 19,931 on Monday.
Because the government no longer publishes information on Saturdays and Sundays, this report contains data from three days.
It also significantly increased the rolling seven-day average daily number of new cases to 14.
Over the weekend, another 50 instances were settled, bringing the total number of cases resolved to 19,931.
In October, only one COVID-19 fatality was reported, bringing the total number of deaths in the area to 300.
This leaves the area with 115, active COVID-19 cases, up slightly from where things stood on Friday.
Of those cases, seven involve people who are in area hospitals suffering from COVID-19 while three of those patients are in intensive care.
Waterloo Region is down to four active COVID-19 outbreaks after a new one was reported involving an unnamed manufacturing facility as others ended at Grand River Collegiate Institute in Kitchener, Hespeler Public School in Cambridge and Garderie des Lutins daycare in Kitchener.
Waterloo Public Health reported that 885,067 vaccinations have been done in the region, which is an increase of 2,787 over Friday.
A total of 437,509 area residents are now fully vaccinated, which is 1,811 more than was reported three days earlier.
This means 74.3 per cent of area residents are now fully vaccinated, a number that climbs to 86.28 per cent when discounting those who are ineligible to be vaccinated.
On the other hand, Ontario recorded 373 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, the ninth day in a row that the number has been under 500. The overall number of cases in the province presently stands at 595,235.
