The Ontario Dental Association will meet Friday to discuss whether it’s possible for dental clinics to administer COVID-19 tests to patients throughout the province. This comes as demand for the service increases along with the number of cases in Ontario.

Last week, select pharmacies across the province started offering the free service to help ease wait times in medical clinics and hospitals that offer COVID-19 testing.

On Tuesday, Ontario reported 554 new cases of COVID-19 in the province, with the majority of cases in Toronto. There are currently 4,791 active cases of the virus throughout the province.
