My friends, I've been clear on this, the situation is extremely serious, and further action is required.  Doug Ford

"To protect what matters most, we need to get the community spread under control," Ford stated. 

The new lockdown rules mean that no indoor private gatherings are permitted with anyone outside of your household.

Outdoor gatherings are only allowed to have 10 people. 

Non-essential services, such as shopping malls are only allowed to stay open for pick-up and delivery.

Gyms, cinemas, and personal services must close as well. 

On Friday, Ontario reported 1,418 cases of COVID-19, with Peel reporting 400 and Toronto reporting 393.
