Doug Ford and the Ontario government are closing Ontario effective 11:59 pm on Tuesday.
Essential services and businesses will stay open. The Ontario government will announce on Tuesday the full list of businesses and organizations required to close.
Snowbirds, families, and spring break vacationers are returning home to Canada. They must ALL self-isolate for 14 days, which means you do not stop at the grocery store or gas station. You go directly home from the airport and stay there for 14 days.
Unfortunately, some travellers ignored the 14-day self-isolation request. The federal government is considering enacting the Quarantine Act which includes fines up to $1 million and up to 3 years in jail.
Doug Ford expressed his frustration at people not observing the self-isolation order. He said, “Bottom line, self-isolate, no negotiation.”
The Ontario school system will not open on April 6 as previously projected.
