Ontario reports 712 new COVID-19 cases as hospitalizations continue slow climb

Ontario reports 712 new COVID-19 cases as hospitalizations continue slow climb”

"I hate doing this", said Premier Doug Ford following his announcement this afternoon that York Region is returning to a modified stage 2, which will suspend indoor dining and close down gyms, cinemas and casinos for 28 days at the end of this weekend. "And I know this will be very, very hard for many people to hear".

More than 1,130 one-time keys have been entered by app users in Ontario who have tested positive for COVID-19, in turn notifying Ontarians of potential exposure to the virus and allowing them to take necessary public health precautions.

The per cent positivity rate increased from the previous day's 2.6 per cent, according to provincial data, as Ontario recorded 721 new COVID-19 cases out of roughly 32,200 tests.

In York Region, the number of cases and hospitalizations are now trending upwards and further action is required to help stop the spread of the virus in this community. "I encourage everyone to participate because we need all of us pulling in the same direction to make this COVID Alert app work".

Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott says 239 of the new cases are in Toronto. "This is a very small but important way we can lead by example". "So, it's not necessarily what the numbers are from one day to the next but the trend that we are seeing and we are seeing an alarming upward trend".

The Chief Medical Officer of Health and other public health experts continue to closely monitor the evolving situation across the province to advise if and when public health measures or restrictions should be adjusted or tightened.

Moments after the announcement, Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti thanked the premier for giving the hospitality industry a few days to adjust their operations.

The new restrictions were implemented in less than 24 hours in Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa.

STATEMENT - York Region to move to modified Stage 2 on Monday at 12:01AM.

As Ontario and Quebec are weeks into the second wave of COVID-19 and 2.500 new cases were reported across the country on Thursday, other provinces that appeared to have transmission of the coronavirus under control are now also struggling to contain it. Before-school and after-school programs will also be exempt from these new restrictions.
