Ontario's Minister Of Health Says Step 1 Could Start 'Several Days Earlier' Than Expected

The province's minister of health is hinting that Ontario's reopening plan could start earlier than expected.*

On Thursday, Christine Elliott said that the province could enter step one "several days earlier" than planned, according to CTV News.

The minister revealed that the province is "doing very well" in terms of stopping the spread of COVID-19 and that, "people are anxious to move into step one, but we can only do that when it's safe for everyone's health for that to happen."

The news comes one day after Premier Doug Ford echoed similar words. In a press conference, the premier revealed that he was "so hopeful" that step one could kick into gear before June 14.

However, no official announcement to reopen the province early has been made. Currently, step one is still expected to begin during the week of June 14.
