The latest coronavirus news from Canada and around the world Monday. This file will be updated throughout the day. Web links to longer stories if available.

5:50 p.m.: Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole has accused one of his own MPs of misleading Canadians about the dangers of COVID-19, but said whether she remains in the party is not his decision to make.

Marilyn Gladu (Sarnia-Lambton) is one of a number of MPs advocating for Canadians who face repercussions for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19, over concerns that their civil liberties are being infringed.

But on Sunday, Gladu also appeared to challenge the scientific consensus on COVID-19, telling CTV’s “Question Period” that the disease doesn’t have the same “frequency of risk” as polio.

O’Toole said Monday there’s a line between standing up for constituents and sowing uncertainty about the health and well-being of Canadians.

“Ms. Gladu’s interview did that yesterday and it’s not appropriate at a time when we should be answering questions about vaccine hesitancy, not creating new questions,” O’Toole told a news conference in Ottawa.

5:30 p.m.: A Saskatchewan doctor who died from COVID-19 is being remembered by a colleague as a joyful spirit who was always pleasant to be around.

A longtime friend and fellow physician says Dr. Youssef Al-Begamy died Sunday at a Toronto hospital, where he was being treated for the virus.

Dr. Fauzi Ramadan, who is based in Moose Jaw, Sask., says the worst thing was notifying his friend’s mother and sisters in Saudi Arabia of his death.

Al-Begamy, who was an emergency room and family doctor in the Regina area, had no immediate family in Canada.

5:13 p.m.: Nova Scotia on Monday reported a three-day total of 111 new COVID-19 cases from over the weekend, nearly double the three-day total identified a week earlier when there were 59.

Among the new cases was an outbreak of the disease at the East Cumberland Lodge nursing home in Pugwash, N.S., where four residents and one staff member have tested positive for COVID-19.

During a briefing Monday, deputy chief medical officer Dr. Shelley Deeks told reporters the staff member's infection was tied to a multi-day faith gathering in late October. One of the residents was in hospital and the facility increased health measures to control the spread.

"I fully expect we will see more cases at this facility," Deeks said. "The good news is that vaccination coverage of residents and staff is very high in this facility."

Under the province's vaccine mandate, faith services do not require proof of vaccination.

Provincial health officials said the new cases were largely centred in the province's western region, and they attributed the rise to ongoing spread of the disease in Amherst and Cumberland County.

There are 255 active reported cases of COVID-19 in the province, with nine people in hospital, including one in intensive care.

Over the past three days, five schools in the province were notified of COVID-19 exposures, according to officials.

5:00 p.m.: New Brunswick reported 44 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday.

Health officials said in a news release there were 504 active infections in the province, including 17 people in hospital with the disease.

They said nine people were in intensive care and eight of those were unvaccinated.

About 86 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and nearly 93 per cent have received at least one dose.

Officials said school personnel and residents aged 65 and older can book appointments for booster shots if six months have passed since their second doses.

After the land border between Canada and the United States reopened Monday, officials reminded residents that all travellers must comply with guideline set by both governments.

4:45 p.m.: The Manitoba government is offering a new subsidy for businesses and non-profit groups who need to train employees as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Employers can get up to $2,500 per employee, to a maximum of $75,000, for any training course offered by a third-party.

Jobs Minister Jon Reyes says the money will help businesses that have had to adapt to the pandemic's realities.

The program is being run along with Economic Development Winnipeg and the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce.

The province's COVID-19 numbers are rising.

Health officials are reporting 494 new cases and six deaths over the last three days.

The five-day test positivity rate is 5.4 per cent across Manitoba and 2.7 per cent in Winnipeg.

4:24 p.m.: Newfoundland and Labrador is reporting nine new cases of COVID-19 as some of its cancer care services resume following a cyberattack on its health system.

Officials said Monday there are 36 active reported COVID-19 infections across the province, including one person in hospital due to the disease.

Public health says the cyberattack that disabled health-care information technology systems late last month has not affected the COVID-19 vaccination program, and data shows 87 per cent of eligible residents are now fully vaccinated.

The attack forced some hospitals and health authorities to revert to pen and paper and prompted the cancellation of thousands of medical appointments.

The province's eastern health authority, which includes St. John's, says radiation treatments resumed Saturday evening and patients will be contacted to schedule appointments based on priority.

The health authority says routine cancer screening is still not available, and staff are working through contingency plans to restore more services.

3:05 p.m. Experts say COVID-19 cases are on the rise again in Ontario amid cooling temperatures and the lifting of capacity limits.

But the scientific director for Ontario's COVID-19 science advisory group says behavioural changes like avoiding crowds, wearing masks and working from home can help steady the course.

Dr. Peter Juni says the rise in daily case counts over the last week comes after the province lifted capacity restrictions on venues like stadiums and restaurants and the weather became cooler, forcing people indoors.

Juni says people may be taking fewer precautions in of light those changes and the high vaccination rate in the province.

The seven-day average for infections has risen to 476 from 362 a week ago, and University of Toronto public health professor Barry Pakes says increasing case numbers were to be expected with the cooler weather and relaxation of public health measures.

Pakes says the trend isn't too worrying yet but it might mean cases are even higher next month, so people who aren't vaccinated should get their shots before gathering over the holidays.

3 p.m. Several advocacy groups are concerned that a dearth of data about who is getting COVID-19 vaccines and who is not could be causing people of certain races or socio-economic backgrounds to fall through the cracks.

Without good information from the provinces, certain groups may be left vulnerable to the virus and disproportionately punished by vaccine mandates.

Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO of policy think tank Wellesley Institute, says research has indicated significantly less uptake in COVID-19 vaccines among racialized Canadians — particularly those who are Black — but the government is doing little about it.

As of Oct. 30, about 84 per cent of eligible Canadians have received at least two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

McKenzie says without accurate data, it's difficult to know precisely who those other 16 per cent of people are and how to develop strategies to support them and win their trust.

Provincial governments and the Public Health Agency of Canada have not collected detailed information about people as they received their shots, but the government did commission a survey to examine attitudes toward COVID-19 vaccines back in spring 2021.

2:53 p.m. A new study of hundreds of white-tailed deer infected with the coronavirus in Iowa has found that the animals probably are contracting the virus from humans and then rapidly spreading it among one another, according to researchers.

Up to 80 per cent of deer sampled from April 2020 through January 2021 in the state were infected, the study indicated.

Scientists said the findings pose worrisome implications for the spread of the coronavirus, although they were not able to identify how the deer might have contracted the virus from humans. There is no evidence that deer have passed the virus back to humans.

Researchers and outside experts characterized the study’s findings as a troubling development in the course of the pandemic. Widespread infection among North America’s most ubiquitous game species could make eradicating the pathogen even more difficult, especially if they became a reservoir for mutations that eventually spilled back over to humans.

2:45 p.m. Nova Scotia is reporting 111 new COVID-19 cases from over the weekend, nearly double the total identified a week earlier when there were 59.

Provincial health officials say the new cases are largely centred in the province's western region, and they have attributed the rise to ongoing spread of the disease in Amherst and Cumberland County.

Officials have also noted spread of the novel coronavirus connected to faith-based gatherings, leading to secondary transmission to other gatherings, workplaces and a long-term care facility in Pugwash.

There are 255 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, with nine people in hospital, including one in intensive care.

2:36 p.m. Statistics Canada says more than 19,000 Canadians lost their lives during COVID-19 than would have been expected had the pandemic never happened.

The report highlights the deadly toll COVID-19 has taken directly and indirectly on Canadian lives.

According to provisional data, approximately 19,488 more Canadians died between March 2020 and July 2021 than would have been expected.

That's 5.2 per cent more deaths than if the pandemic never happened.

During that time frame, Statistics Canada says that while 25,465 people died as a direct consequence of contracting the virus, the pandemic also delayed medical procedures and led to a rise in substance use, which could also have contributed to the number of deaths.

On the flip side, some lives may have been spared by other causes, including public health measures that prevented influenza from spreading as usual last year.

The numbers don't reflect all the deaths that occurred as some are still being investigated, so the data may under-represent the true number of deaths attributed to certain causes, including suicides.

2:20 p.m. The reopening of the U.S. land border to Canadian leisure travellers on Monday was cause for celebration in communities on both sides of the Peace Bridge and the Ambassador Bridge. But along with the relief, there remains exasperation with Canadian testing requirements that still serve as a barrier to travel.

“Today marks the day that loved ones who have been separated for the past 19 months will finally be reunited. That is very, very significant,” Rep. Brian Higgins of Buffalo, N.Y., told a virtual news conference. “In preparing for this day, we will see significant uptick in economic activity, but we’re still doing it with one hand tied behind our back, with this redundant, unnecessary testing requirement.”

That was a reference to the ongoing requirement that those entering Canada — Americans and returning Canadians alike — must provide proof of a negative result from a molecular COVID-19 test, such as a PCR test, that was taken within 72 hours. No such requirement exists for those entering the United States by land; those entering the U.S. by air do need a negative test result, but can use the cheaper rapid antigen tests.

But getting a PCR test result in the time frame required can be expensive — as much as $200 to $300 per person. When our free U.S. drugstore test results did not arrive in time for a recent visit to Canada, my family of four paid well over $1,000 (Cdn.) to get eligible rapid tests in New York state. For many travellers, especially those hoping to make a day trip or stay only a weekend, that cost is a deal-breaker.

1:47 p.m. The owner of the Emerson Duty Free Shop in Winnipeg could barely contain his excitement Monday morning when he realized just how busy the first day of eased border restrictions would be.

As of 9 a.m., just a few hours after the store opened, it had been the busiest day in 20 months.

“This morning I wasn’t really sure how it was going to go, with snowbirds and even with people who’d be going down for a 24-48 (hour trip),” owner Simon Resch told the Winnipeg Free Press.

“But we were backed up from around 5:30 this morning…. It was huge, that was amazing.”

Traffic on the strip of pavement separating the neighbouring countries fluctuated from a steady flow of vehicles to bumper-to-bumper throughout the morning as restrictions preventing non-essential travel across the border by Canadians — imposed at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic — were relaxed at midnight by the United States.

1:30 p.m. (updated) Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole said comments about vaccines by some members of his caucus are not helpful and are spreading uncertainty about immunization against COVID-19, but he will deal with those issues with his team in private.

The move to distance himself from such comments is the latest development on the issue of mandatory vaccinations for the Conservative leader, who has struggled for weeks to put a lid on questions about where he and his party stand. Some of his MPs are ardently against such policies, while others see it as a lesser issue.

On Monday, O'Toole told a news conference in Ottawa that Ontario MP Marilyn Gladu's comments during an interview on CTV's "Question Period" caused confusion with respect to the health and well-being of Canadians.

During the interview that aired Sunday, Gladu compared COVID-19 to polio when it spread during the first half of the 20th century, but claimed the novel coronavirus doesn't pose the same "frequency of risk" in terms of deaths or disabilities.

"There's a big difference between advocating for your constituents who may need reasonable accommodation," said O'Toole.

1:15 p.m. The Israeli Tourism Ministry has announced that fully vaccinated or recovered foreign nationals, including U.S. tourists, can resume travel to Israel for the first time in 19 months. This follows a successful pilot reopening program started in May 2021, which allowed only select, organized tour groups of immunized foreigner visitors.

Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, along with several other Ministers within the country and the COVID cabinet have worked together to create and approve the new reopening plan, which took effect at the beginning of November.

1 p.m. A North Dakota lawmaker and an organizer of a rally Monday to oppose COVID-19 vaccine mandates is infected with the coronavirus and won’t attend the event.

Republican Rep. Jeff Hoverson posted on Facebook Sunday that he was “quarantining and each day is getting better.” The Minot lawmaker said he is taking the deworming drug ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment, and has not checked into a hospital.

“Covid is real and like a really bad flu,” Hoverson wrote.

12:45 p.m. Greece reported a new record high for daily COVID-19 infections on Monday as vaccination appointments shot up after new restrictions on unvaccinated people kicked in over the weekend.

Health authorities recorded more than 7,300 new infections since late Sunday — compared to the previous record of about 6,900 set Friday — amid a constant surge in cases that’s filling hospital intensive care units. Officials also registered 65 new deaths.

About 61 per cent of Greece’s 11 million population has been fully vaccinated so far, which is below the European Union average.

12:10 p.m. Quebec is reporting 531 new cases of COVID-19 Monday and four more deaths attributed to the coronavirus.

Health officials say COVID-19-related hospitalizations dropped by two, to 225, and there were 48 people in intensive care, a drop of two.

The seven-day average for new daily cases stands at 563.

About 63 per cent of the new cases involved people who had not been vaccinated or had received a first dose of vaccine fewer than 14 days since becoming infected.

The Health Department says 4,195 vaccine doses were administered in the past 24 hours.

11:50 a.m. Quebec’s seniors minister will not appear before a coroner’s inquest investigating deaths in the long-term care system during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Marguerite Blais is on medical leave and will be replaced at the hearings on Nov. 17 by Danielle McCann, the province’s former health minister who is serving as minister of higher education.

The Canadian Press reported on Friday that Blais’s appearance was the subject of discussions between attorneys for the coroner’s office and the attorney general.

Blais has been on sick leave since Oct. 29 due to burnout and her responsibilities have been taken over temporarily by Health Minister Christian Dubé.

11:35 a.m. Ontario is reporting another 480 COVID-19 cases and two more deaths, according to its latest report released Monday morning.

Ontario has administered 17,057 vaccine doses since its last daily update, with 22,623,960 vaccines given in total as of 8 p.m. the previous night.

According to the Star’s vaccine tracker, 11,534,328 people in Ontario have received at least one shot. That works out to approximately 88.5 per cent of the eligible population 12 years and older, and the equivalent of 77.6 per cent of the total population, including those not yet eligible for the vaccine.

11:25 a.m. Cirque du Soleil is back — back from a dark period during the pandemic that saw the billion-dollar company struggling to stay alive, and back here in Toronto with a new run of one of its most acclaimed and popular shows.

“Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities” will play a limited run under the company’s iconic big top at Ontario Place from April 14, 2022, with tickets on sale from Dec. 3. This Toronto run will be the first performances of “Kurios” after the pandemic, and is the start of a North American tour of the show.

The steampunk-inspired show first played in Toronto in 2014, and was praised by the Star’s then-theatre critic Richard Ouzounian as “the most joyous piece of theatre I’ve seen in years.”

10:50 a.m. The Ottawa Senators have cancelled their practice a day after defenceman Nick Holden and associate coach Jack Capuano were placed on the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list.

The Senators said the decision to cancel Monday’s practice was made “for precautionary reasons.”

Holden and Capuano were placed on the protocol list Sunday, a day after Ottawa played a home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

10:13 a.m. Ontario is reporting 480 COVID-19 cases, 2 deaths, according to Dr. Jennifer Kwan.

289 cases are in individuals who are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status and 191 are in fully vaccinated individuals; In Ontario, nearly 88.5 per cent of Ontarians 12+ have one dose and nearly 85.1 per cent have two doses, according to tweets from Health Minister Christine Elliott.

9:55 a.m. At least 84 Hamiltonians with COVID-19 have died during hospital outbreaks over the course of the pandemic.

The number doesn’t include two deaths removed from the tally Nov. 4 after an associate medical officer of health said they were wrongly added.

Dr. Bart Harvey said all Hamilton COVID deaths were being reviewed because public health had inadvertently “overexaggerated” the number by including those who “clearly died of another cause.”

The review is in the early stages and expected to take weeks. There’s noestimate of how many deaths could be removed from Hamilton’s pandemic toll of 420.

9 a.m. The U.S. lifted restrictions Monday on travel from a long list of countries including Mexico, Canada and most of Europe, setting the stage for emotional reunions nearly two years in the making and providing a boost for the airline and tourism industries decimated by the pandemic.

Wives will hug husbands for the first time in months. Grandmas will coo over grandsons who have doubled in age since they last saw them. Aunts and uncles and cousins will snuggle babies they haven’t met yet.

“I’m going to jump into his arms, kiss him, touch him,” Gaye Camara said of the husband in New York she has not seen since before COVID-19 brought the fly-here-there-and-everywhere world to a halt.

8:45 a.m. Two elementary schools will be closed on Prince Edward Island on Monday after two children tested positive for COVID-19.

The kids under the age of 12 accounted for two of the four new diagnoses reported on Sunday.

All four people are from the same household, and their cases are related to out-of-province travel.

Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Heather Morrison says one of the children attends the Westwood Primary School, and the other is a student at Eliot River Elementary School in Cornwall, P.E.I., so both will be closed on Monday out of an abundance of caution.

8:30 a.m. Black Friday is around the corner, and with border restrictions loosening Monday, you may be wondering if the trip to the U.S. is worth those deals.

The pandemic spawned additional costs for Canadians travelling south. Here’s a look at the extra costs cross-border shoppers will face and tips to avoid any nasty surprises.

Canadians travelling to the U.S. by air will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination as well as a negative test result. This can be any kind of COVID test, including the cheaper rapid antigen tests.

A test costs anywhere from $16 to $40, depending on where you get it, said Marty Firestone, president of Toronto-based travel insurance company Travel Secure Inc.

8 a.m. After a year and a half of disrupted learning due to the pandemic, Katie Piccininni was looking forward to getting a detailed report card and attending parent-teacher interviews to understand how her son is doing in school. Now, that won’t be happening.

“The kids lose again,” said Piccininni, whose son Josh is in Grade 8 at a Toronto Catholic school. “After 18 months there are a lot of learning gaps.”

She worries about those gaps for Josh, who has a learning disability. Last year, when classes moved online because of COVID-19 restrictions, he kept up with his studies, but midway his interest waned and by the spring he was exhausted from staring at a screen.

7:31 a.m. Ann Harkness is champing at the bit to start her annual migration.

For 13 years, the retired teacher and her husband, Steve, taunted the winter freeze by packing the car up each fall and driving south to Winter Haven, Fla., from Kingston, Ont., to while away the cold Canadian months until the spring thaw tempted them home again.

Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic put an end to that routine. For the first time in more than a decade, the Harknesses stayed home for the winter.

But this year, with winter fast approaching and the U.S. border finally opening to non-essential travellers Monday, Harkness and an estimated one million snowbirds like her are hearing the call of the mild again.

5:54 a.m.: Slovakia on Monday expanded strict coronavirus restrictions including hotel, bar and restaurant closures to almost a half of the country amid a record surge of infections.

The government is expected to discuss additional measures as the country’s health minister joined medical personnel who treat COVID-19 patients in urging Slovaks to get vaccinated.

“Only vaccination can take us through the pandemic,” Health Minister Vladimir Lengvarsky said.

The measures will affect 36 of the country’s 79 counties. Indicative of how fast infections are spreading, only five counties had imposed the measures three weeks ago, and another five a week later.

5:30 a.m.: Japan reported zero daily deaths from COVID-19 on Sunday for the first time in 15 months, as infections decline rapidly in the country.

Health officials on Monday said there were no deaths the previous day, giving Japan a total of 18,310 fatalities since the pandemic began.

Japan on Monday also eased entry restrictions for foreign students, workers and short-term business travelers who are fully vaccinated, have their activity plans guaranteed by sponsors and observe 10 days of self-isolation.

Self-quarantine for Japanese citizens and foreign residents was also shortened to three days from the previous 10 days.

The last time Japan reported no new coronavirus deaths was on Aug. 2, 2020, according to the ministry.

5:15 a.m.: The Biden administration is encouraging local school districts to host clinics to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to kids — and information to parents on the benefits of the shots — as the White House looks to speedily provide vaccines to those ages 5 to 11.

First lady Jill Biden and Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy are set to visit the Franklin Sherman Elementary School in McLean, Virginia, on Monday to launch a nationwide campaign to promote child vaccinations. The school was the first to administer the polio vaccine in 1954.

The visit comes just days after federal regulators recommended the COVID-19 vaccine for the age group. The White House says Biden will visit pediatric vaccination clinics across the country over the coming weeks to encourage the shots.

4:40 a.m.: For the first time in nearly 20 months, non-essential traffic is once again moving in both directions across the Canada-U.S. land border.

Shortly after midnight, Customs and Border Protection agents began letting fully vaccinated vacationers, visitors and day-trippers drive into the United States for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

Not everyone is taking advantage, however.

Many Canadians with family members living in the U.S. say they aren’t lining up to cross just yet, thanks in part to Canada’s requirement that they get a costly COVID-19 test in order to return home.

New York congressman Brian Higgins will join today with mayors and community leaders from both sides of the Canada-U.S. border to urge the federal government in Ottawa to abandon the rule.

Canada’s chief medical officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, said last week that the government is well aware of the complaints about the test requirement and that it is under review.

The U.S. is not requiring foreign nationals who are visiting by land to show proof of a negative test, but that won’t matter much until Canada does away with the rule as well, critics say.

The Canada Border Services Agency issued a statement last week reminding would-be travellers that proof of a negative test, taken no more than 72 hours before travel, is required to re-enter Canada, along with proof of vaccination.

Not only is the expense discouraging people from travelling, it’s a self-defeating measure that does little to improve public safety, said Perrin Beatty, a former federal cabinet minister who now serves as CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

“It just makes no sense,” Beatty said in an interview.

4 a.m.: A debrief of the federal election campaign is expected to be high on the agenda when members of the Liberal caucus gather today.

It will be the first full meeting of the caucus since the Liberals emerged from the Sept. 20 election with a minority government.

The outcome, largely mirroring the pre-election configuration of the House of Commons, followed polls earlier in the year that suggested a majority Liberal government was within reach.

In addition to some administrative business, Liberal MPs are likely to talk about what to expect in the coming parliamentary session.

Key Liberal campaign promises included new measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, implementation of a buyback program for banned firearms, plans to boost home ownership and steps to finish the fight against COVID-19.

The House resumes sitting Nov. 22 for four weeks before taking a holiday break.

4 a.m.: Tourism operators have mixed feelings about the opening of the U.S. land border Monday.

An end to the 20-month closure of the world’s longest undefended frontier marks a sign that restrictions are loosening and more international leisure travel may be on the horizon.

But if Canadians start to stream south for vacations and shopping sprees, they aren’t spending their money on destinations here.

Chris Bloore, chief executive of the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario, says local visits to hot spots ranging from Niagara Region vineyards to the boutique hotels of Prince Edward County will undoubtedly decline after receiving a boost last summer.

“There is definitely going to be a reduction in some numbers, for sure. That’s absolutely inevitable,” he said.

“But as we start to welcome international visitors now back to Canada, as we try and push for PCR testing, changes to protocols, we’re hoping to make sure that we’re we’re looking further afield to people as well to try and bring them to us.”

Travel and tourism organizations are lobbying the federal government, which opened its border to Americans in August, to end the ongoing COVID-19 test requirement to enter the country.

Currently, any Canadian returning home by land who wants to avoid quarantine needs to provide a recent molecular test that shows a negative result. Non-residents who test positive are turned away at the border.

At a cost of $150 to $300 per test, that can be a pricey proposition, particularly for families.

2:30 a.m.: Germany’s coronavirus infection rate climbed to its highest recorded level yet on Monday as what officials have called a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” gathers pace.

The national disease control centre, the Robert Koch Institute, said the country has seen 201.1 new cases per 100,000 residents over the past seven days. That was above the previous record of 197.6 from Dec. 22 last year. While it’s still a lower rate than in several other European countries, it has set alarm bells ringing.

The seven-day infection rate has long ceased to be the only yardstick for COVID-19 policy in Germany, but officials say hospitals are filling up in badly affected areas. The disease control centre said Monday that 15,513 new cases were reported over the past 24 hours — down from a record 37,120 on Friday, but figures are typically lower after the weekend.

Germany has struggled to find ways to pep up its much-slowed vaccination campaign. At least 67% of the population of 83 million is fully vaccinated, according to official figures, which authorities say isn’t enough. Unlike some other European countries, it has balked at making vaccinations mandatory for any professional group.
