CA, 19 Apr 2021
Canadian officials held a conference Sunday to discuss providing federal resources and assistance to Ontario as the province continues to grapple with record-high COVID-19 cases.
The federal government could deploy medical staff from the Canadian Armed Forces or the assistance could come in the form of additional staff and volunteers from the Canadian Red Cross.
Ontario announced a range of new restrictions on Friday as the province continues to deal with the third wave of COVID-19.
The stay-at-home order was also extended for another two weeks and will now be in place until at least May 20. Residents must stay home except for essential reasons, including outdoor exercise, getting groceries, work that cannot be done remotely, or accessing health-care services.
