"Right now, we are staring down the barrel of another lockdown in these regions," the premier states.

"We expect new measures to be discussed at cabinet and announced in the coming days."

"My friends, we need to hunker down," Ford concluded. 

The move comes after Mayor John Tory has also called for more restriction in Toronto. 

The mayor recommends measures such as limiting the number of people in shopping centres.
