Ontario, all 34 public health units move into new shutdown category as COVID-19 cases soar

The Ontario government is implementing a “provincewide emergency brake” due to surging number of COVID-19 case.

This will take effect from 12.01 am on Saturday the restrictions will remain in place for at least 4 weeks.

All restaurants across the province will close for in-person dining.

Toronto and Peel that reopened on 22nd March will be shut down once again.

Gyms have to be closed.

Day camps will be cancelled as well.

Essential stores will remain open at 50% capacity and non-essential retail can operate at 25% capacity.

Premier Doug Ford said, “The millions of additional vaccines we need are on the horizon, they are weeks away and that is how we know things will get better very, very soon. But the bottom line is we need more time. We need more time for our vaccine program to take hold,” He further said “We need more runway to allow our vaccines rollout to get where we need it and that means we need to take action now.”

Ontario has also reported more than 2,000 cases for the past 7 days consecutive days.
