Ontario Premier Doug Ford is expected to provide an update on the province’s COVID-19 situation in a virtual press conference on Friday as the final report on the government’s handling of the pandemic in long-term care homes is expected to be submitted.
Ontario Deputy Premier Christine Elliott announced on Thursday that the province will be opening up COVID-19 vaccine booking eligibility to adults 55 and over on their provincial portal starting Friday, and hopes to start booking appointments for all adults over 18 as early as the week of May 24.
The science and modelling advisory tables reported Thursday a cresting of cases at a “very high” level, but “incredible pressure” on the province’s intensive care units (ICUs) and elevated workplace mobility are still posing major issues in the effort to get the third wave under control.
Ontario has surpassed 8,000 deaths due to COVID-19.
