Ontario’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Kieran Moore is expected to provide an update Thursday on the province’s COVID-19 cases and ongoing vaccine rollout.
On Monday, the province began lifting capacity limits for facilities requiring proof of COVID-19 immunization, including restaurants, gyms and casinos. The province also will remove capacity limits at outdoor, organized public events such as Remembrance Day ceremonies and Santa Claus parades.
Premier Doug Ford announced the changes last week as he unveiled long-term plans for managing the pandemic, which aim to remove all public health measures meant to slow the spread of COVID-19 by late March, including mask mandates.
Moore’s update also comes as the Ontario government says it will introduce legislation today aimed at reforming standards in the province’s long-term care sector.
Ontario reported 321 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, as active cases across the province have dropped below 3,000. Ten new deaths were recorded, with one death having occurred more than a month ago.
