Ontario could announce new restrictions today to curb surging COVID-19 rates


TORONTO — Ontario could announce new public health restrictions today to curb surging cases of COVID-19 which are straining hospital capacity.

The province’s associate medical officer of health said Thursday that additional recommendations have been made to cabinet.

Dr. Barbara Yaffe said the situation in the province is “dire” and worse than any other point in the pandemic.

Solicitor General Sylvia Jones said “everything is on the table” when asked about possible new restrictions on Thursday.

She would not say what specific measures cabinet was considering, or could be announced today.

Ontario’s science advisory co-chair Dr. Adalsteinn Brown is also expected to provide an updated pandemic modelling briefing today.



  1. We need VACCINES and the lazy Algoma Health Unit having people that do the work.
    The health system should have more hands on nurses and doctors and less half a million dollars a year salary for Administrators that handle the Hospitals with the iPhone.

    And BTW, we have to vote the politicians that will kick the R’s of those high salary earners that DO NOT BRING ANY SERVICE TO THE REAL JOE!

  2. They wonder how vaccinating the elderly population, whom rarely takes vacation or even ambulate much….versus not vaccinating the young who have families, work, and are mostly always on the go…..and they thought their way would “slow the curve”…..OMG.
    They should have vaccinated the young ones first…the ones who travel to work etc….

    • It’s irrelevant who they vaccinate apparently. Even Trudeau stated that getting fully vaccinated doesn’t stop anyone from getting the virus, carrying or transmitting it to other people.
      People who have been fully vaccinated are still reportedly getting covid.
