Top Doctor Says Ontario Needs To Hit Below 1,000 Cases A Day To End Stay-At-Home Order
Ontario is still reporting well over 2,000 cases a day.
One of the province's top doctors just revealed when Ontario's stay-at-home order might finally be lifted.
In a press conference on Monday, Dr. David Williams, Ontario's chief medical officer of health, revealed that the current restrictions won't be lifted until the province gets to under 1,000 cases a day.
"I haven't got a definite metric right now, it certainly will be well below 1,000," Williams stated when asked when the order would be lifted. "But I think that is achievable with the two things happening; our ongoing stay-at-home measures [...] and really getting out and getting that vaccination done."
Currently, Ontario is still reporting well over 2,000 cases a day. On Monday, 2,716 new cases were reported across the province.
While it is still unclear exactly when the stay-at-home order will come to an end, Doug Ford's government is reportedly discussing extending it until at least June 2.
