Ontario is reporting 3,295 new cases of COVID-19 in the province today with 19 deaths as a result of the virus. As a reminder on the first day of the stay-at-home order, an emergency alert was broadcasted across mobile phones, radios and televisions just after 11:00 a.m. this morning.

“A stay-at-home order is in effect. Only leave home for essential purposes such as food, health care, vaccines, exercise or work. It’s the law. Stay home, save lives.”

In an interview on CBC Radio’s Ottawa Morning Thursday, host Robyn Bresnahan asked Solicitor General Sylvia Jones why the province waited until Easter weekend to enact more stringent restrictions, as health experts had been calling for them sooner.

“We wanted to make sure that the modelling was actually showing up in our hospitals. We’ve seen that now,” Jones said.

Today also marked a record breaking 108,563 doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered across the province. Of the 4,031,325 doses the province has received to date from the federal government, just over 70 percent have been administered as of Wednesday evening.

  1. I imagine it would be embarrassing for all Administrators and Chief Medical Officers, if the Premier request the assistance of the Army to achieve vaccination.
    It’s impossible to get through the iron curtain covering Algoma Public Health.
    No way to get through online booking and appointment.
    No one answer your call, your messages, if you manage to record one.
    It’s very sad that the information is not accurate and the public is treated poorly.
