Toronto Mayor John Tory, the city’s top doctor Dr. Eileen de Villa and other officials are holding a press conference on Monday following Premier Doug Ford’s announcement of an Ontario-wide lockdown and further public health restrictions amid a surge in COVID-19 cases.
The provincial government is expected to implement a 28-day lockdown for most of the province, while the north would be subject to a two-week lockdown.
As part of the plans, elementary-age school children would not return to classes as scheduled after the holidays but would spend the first week of school in the new year at home doing virtual learning and then return on Jan. 11.
Many health-care officials, as well as some Greater Toronto Area politicians — including Tory — have called for stronger restrictions over the holidays in a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19.
