Here’s Ontario’s latest third-wave COVID-19 modelling

Here’s Ontario’s latest third-wave COVID-19 modelling”

Big and small police forces across the province, however, said they had no intention of exercising their new-found powers.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford said those who live alone will be able to meet someone from another household outside, while he also announced playgrounds and golf courses will be closed.

"We'll be limiting access to border crossings between Ontario and the provinces of Manitoba and Quebec", he said on Friday, while announcing new restrictions that will be implemented across Ontario.

The province's record high for COVID-19 cases was set on Friday, with 4,812 cases recorded.

"As you would have seen in today's modelling, if Ontario had the supply to ramp up to at least 300,000 vaccinations a day, it would have a significant impact on our ability to get a handle on this third wave", Ford's office said.

The P. 1 variant's arrival in Yukon is particularly worrying, the territory's chief medical officer said, because there's little information about how the strain responds to the Moderna vaccine, which has been administered to about 70 per cent of Yukon residents. In addition, police officers, special constables and First Nation Constables will have the authority to stop vehicles to inquire about an individual's reasons for leaving their home.

The data also shows that while people are moving around the province less it hasn't been enough to slow the transmission of the virus.

"I don't see ourselves going into a position where we're going to be providing fines for people that are constantly trying to come into the province without a good reason", said Marin.

Starting on Monday, Ontario is tightening restrictions further.

Before the pandemic, on an average day, more than 180,000 trips were made between the two cities that face each other across the Ottawa River. "We need to do more to stop other even deadlier variants from getting into Canada and causing more havoc".

In the Timmins area, there has been a surge of cases this week, with 68 cases being confirmed by the Porcupine Health Unit since Monday.

The province reported 4,250 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, down slightly from the previous day's total (4,362).

Despite the emergence of the second linked case of blood clotting, Ontario will begin offering the AstraZeneca vaccine from Tuesday (local time) to people turning 40 or older this year, according to a government source.

Today's new cases in the capital raise the total number of active infections to 22.

The pandemic, Angus said, had strained hospital capacity in southern Ontario, particularly intensive care.

His government has also asked other provinces to send nurses and other health workers to Ontario as hospitals are pushed to the brink by surging COVID-19 infections.

Ontario is reporting 4,250 new cases of COVID-19 in the province as hospitalizations and admissions to intensive care units both reached new highs over the past 24 hours.

All non-essential constructions projects will be stopped, places of worship are limited to a capacity of no more than 10 people indoors or outdoors for services, weddings, and funerals. It also reported 25 more deaths related to the virus.
