Ontario to pause loosening of Covid Restrictions

Ontario to pause loosening of Covid Restrictions

amid concern over uptick in cases

TORONTO, ONTARIO  ~~~~  September 8, 2020  (LSN)  Ontario to take a 4-week pause loosening of coronavirus restrictions  
“The latest trends in numbers have raised some concern, especially as we begin to reopen schools and post-secondary institutions,” Elliott said. 
amid concern over uptick in cases

That is why, based on the advice of the chief medical officer of health, Dr David Williams  and the public health measures table, Ontaro  will be taking a pause of four weeks — or two two-week cycles of the virus — before considering any further loosening of public health measures or further reopening of businesses, facilities and organizations.”

Ontario reported 190 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, which was the highest increase since July 24. Another 185 cases were reported on Tuesday.
The province remains in Stage 3 of reopening, which includes restrictions on gatherings — capped at 50 people for indoor gatherings and 100 for outdoor, with physical distancing measures in place. Various health and safety requirements must also be in place at businesses.

In a news conference at Queen’s Park, Ontario Premier Doug Ford and provincial cabinet ministers Christine Elliott (health) and Stephen Lecce (education) provide an update on their government’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. They are joined by Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health.

Meanwhile, social circle guidelines remain capped at 10 people.
 "we do need to ensure that the progress we’ve made is not lost. Taking a pause in further reopening at this time will help us to avoid returning to broad-scale closures and shutdowns.” Elliott said.

Ford once again called on Ontarians to avoid going to large social gatherings as officials attributed part of the uptick to communal gatherings.

“We can’t have these big parties. We can’t have the big weddings,” Ford said.
