Ford: Halton, York could join Toronto, Peel in modified Stage 2
Today, Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his cabinet ministers spoke about the other regions in the province going back to Stage 2 to battle the rising COVID-19 cases.
On Thursday, Ford and his team of officials said they’re in the process to consider if other regions such as Halton and York Regions should go back to a modified Stage 2 restriction joining Ottawa, Peel, and Toronto.
Cases continue to rising hitting a daily record of 939 and the number of hospitalizations has doubled in three weeks.
Doug Ford tried to clarify the modified Stage 2 rules during Thursday’s press conference.
“These modified rules are set for 28 days for the purpose of slowing down the COVID-19 cases.”
Ford said he didn’t want to shut down gyms, indoor restaurants, and movie theatres, but due to increasing cases they had to apply those health and safety measures.
