"I think that [the shutdown] would be region-wide. It might even [be] province-wide and that's because you see a number of regions that were in the green or yellow [zones] moved up to [the] orange or red. So we see regions moving in the wrong direction," the mayor told the outlet.

"It is something they are watching very closely, it could happen," she continued.

Today, Ontario reported 1,571 new cases of COVID-19. When the province last shutdown, on December 26, it was reporting a seven-day average of 2,257 new cases.
