Doug Ford made an announcement today saying the stay-at-home order will remain in effect until “at least” June 2. He further explained that restrictions on outdoor recreation will be lifted by that date as well as further reopenings to follow the weeks after.
This was the first conference where Ford took time to listen and answer questions from reporters in more than a week. The conference with Ford was aired live at 12:15 p.m. ET and included the minister of health, solicitor general, and Ontario’s chief medical officer of health.
The extended order is most likely due to the reported 2,759 cases of COVID-19 this morning. This means it’s the most amount of new infections in four days. Specifically, the new cases today include 774 in Toronto, 602 in Peel Region, 258 in York Region, 147 in Durham Region, 133 in Hamilton, and 110 in Ottawa.
