After Quebec, now Ontario is due to announce full control on Monday from December 24th.
In Toronto, a lockdown is already in place in its suburbs and is due to begin applying to Hamilton on Monday, but the Ford government has finally decided to impose it on the entire territory.
Multiple English-Canadian media reported Sunday that the south, which includes Ontario’s major cities, will be limited to at least the next four weeks, but only two weeks to the north.
Prime Minister Doug Ford wants to imitate his Quebec counterpart Franకోois Legalt, because he too plans to delay until January 11 to return to elementary school students’ classes.
As announced in Quebec, classes will resume as planned the week before.
In the case of secondary, courses can only be taken online for the entire duration of the detention period.
Naturally, some of the entertainment venues that are still open in the province will have to close their doors. The opening of the rink on the Ridow Canal in Ottawa is not impossible until late January.
For example, the Ford government rejected the idea of imposing a curfew similar to what was happening in France.
More than 2,000 cases of COVID-19 were reported on Sunday for the sixth day in a row in the country’s most populous province.
