Essex moving into Stage 3 of Ontario's reopening plan on Wednesday”

Yesterday, the province processed 22,275 #COVID19 tests as we continue to lead the country in daily testing.

The health unit says of the 14 cases there are three cases in the agri-farm sector, three local healthcare works, one travel-related to MI, four in the community, and three are under investigation.

Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams, said he made the decision based on positive local trends.

Ahmed said health officials are making progress in the region to contain outbreaks on local farms.

Speaking to reporters on Monday afternoon, Premier Doug Ford said his friends in the United States are "shocked" by the progress Ontario has made in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Windsor-Essex County is the only remaining health unit in Ontario still under Stage 2 restrictions. "The only way to prevent that is through proactive measures".

Overall, Ontario reported 115 new cases of COVID-19 on August 10.

"We shouldn't lose sight of the fact that thanks to your efforts the trend in the province remains downward", Elliott's tweet read.

District Health units with the highest number of new cases in today's report include Ottawa (20 new cases), Peel (19 new cases), Toronto (16 new cases), and Windsor-Essex (12 new cases).

Ontario's website indicates that Stage 3 means that "more restrictions will be loosened and almost all businesses and public spaces will reopen, as long as they follow the public health advice and workplace safety guidance necessary to keep everyone safe".

The minister also said 28 out of 34 of the province's public health units reported five or fewer new cases, while 18 reported none.

He acknowledged concerns from parents that class sizes will be larger than the 10 people allowed in social circles with close contact under existing guidelines, but suggested the concept could soon be expanded, saying, "Stay tuned".

He says for stage three, indoor capacity is 50 people for a number of establishments including restaurants.
