With outdoor dining in Ontario being allowed even in lockdown areas, a doctor is calling out patio tents for not really being "outdoors."
Dr. Zain Chagla, an infectious diseases physician at St. Joe's Hamilton, shared a photo of a tented patio on Twitter and voiced his concern.

A day before he tweeted this, it was announced that Hamilton will be going into lockdown because of "concerning trends."
