Doug Ford Doesn't Want You Leaving Ontario At All Right Now

He says Ontarians should just stay put.

With the holiday season upon us, many Ontarians are thinking about where they'll be spending Christmas this year.

On Monday, Premier Doug Ford made his recommendations clear about travelling outside of Ontario right now — just don't do it.

"You see what’s happening in Manitoba, Alberta, out west — the cases are going like rapid-fire," he began.

Do me a favour, folks, don’t be travelling. Premier Doug Ford

"If you have to, I guess you have to, but try to stay within our province," he continued.

"Don’t be going into Manitoba. Don’t be going into Quebec. [...] Let’s just stick with Ontario."

In order to curb transmission, the province's advice is to avoid any inter-provincial travel unless it is absolutely essential.

Folks in areas of higher transmission, such as the province's red and orange zones, are asked to avoid visiting areas with lower transmission.

As of today, several more regions are now in the orange zone.
