Ontario reports 29 new COVID-19 cases in schools, totalling 238 cases”

Dr. Yaffe says these people are the ones they need to make sure are getting tested as quickly as possible in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The government also reported 29 new cases related to schools, including at least 10 among students.

As of 12:01 Saturday morning, restaurants, bars and other food and drink establishments won't be allowed to sell alcohol after 11 o'clock at night.

As the number of COVID-19 cases rise, Ontario is tightening public health measures.

"Private social gatherings continue to be a significant source of transmission in many local communities, along with outbreak clusters in restaurants, bars, and other food and drink establishments, including strip clubs, with most cases in the 20-39 age group".

Businesses and organizations are also required to comply with advice, recommendations and instructions issued by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health for COVID-19 screening, including screening people entering the premises.

On Thursday, the Ontario Hospital Association released a letter claiming that the sharp rise in cases over the last couple of weeks and the speed at which the virus spread, means public health measures must be implemented to "immediately limit opportunities for disease transmission". "Protecting the health and wellbeing of Ontarians will always remain our top priority".

Premier Doug Ford and Minister of Health, Christine Elliott, both said this is being done to effectively manage surges and outbreaks in COVID-19 cases.

Currently, the Public Health Agency of Canada is warning that the country will reach 5,000 new daily cases by October-an increase from around 1,248 new cases reported yesterday.
