COVID-19: Ontario Premier Ford announces 4-week provincewide shutdown | LIVE

CA, 02 Apr 2021
Ontario Premier Doug Ford will make an announcement on Thursday on COVID-19 restrictions, moving to activate an “emergency brake” for four weeks across the entire province in response to rising cases and strained capacity at intensive care units, multiple sources tell Global News.

Under the plan, indoor and patio dining will be banned and restaurants can only operate with takeout and delivery options.

Many of the logistical details were still being sorted out Wednesday night. However, government and political party sources said the emergency measure, as of Wednesday night, would take effect as of 12:01 a.m. on Saturday.

There were 2,333 new COVID-19 cases reported by the Ontario government on Wednesday. It was also reported that there were 15 more deaths of people who had COVID-19.
