CA, 20 Feb 2021
Ontario Premier Doug Ford is expected to provide an update on the province's COVID-19 vaccination plan on Friday, as his government extended the stay-at-home order for both Toronto and Peel regions until March 8.
Top doctors for Toronto and Peel have asked for its tiered pandemic restrictions system to be delayed until at least March 9 because of the presence of variant strains of the virus in their communities.
Ford will be joined by Deputy Premier Christine Elliott, Solicitor Gen. Sylvia Jones, and retired Gen. Rick Hillier at Friday's briefing.
Ontario is reporting 1,150 new coronavirus cases on Friday, bringing the provincial total to 290,771.
