Case counts are going up. Ontario's second wave is here but officials aren't sure if it's the big one we were expecting or just a small one.

However, there are still questions.

"Are we seeing the big second wave or are we seeing a smaller wave?" Dr. Yaffe said.

While she hopes it's not the big one that was expected in the fall, she confirmed that we are in fact in a wave.

"Our numbers are rapidly going up," she also said.

Due to that, Premier Doug Ford announced that every single part of the province will have limits on gatherings now.

"We aren't out of this," he said.
