Ontario Premier Doug Ford talks at a virtual news conference April 6, 2021.

"But we're going to have further restrictions moving forward, very very quickly".

The letter was released shortly before Peel Medical Officer of Health Dr. Lawrence Loh issued a Section 22 order mandating the immediate closure of all schools in the region for at least two weeks.

"We understand this may not be the news families had hoped for, especially given the province's recent announcement, but recognize the critical need to take steps as directed by TPH to limit the spread of COVID-19 and variants of concern", said Shazia Vlahos, spokesperson for the Toronto Catholic District School Board, in a statement to CBC Toronto.

He said a stay-at-home order will be discussed tomorrow. "And again we have to focus on where we see the problem", he said.

On April 4, the medical officers of health for Toronto, Peel (Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon) and Ottawa asked Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams, to recommend more stringent public health measures amid a rise in COVID-19 cases and ICU admissions.

The three public health leads also called on Williams to review and trim the essential businesses list, impose travel restrictions between other regions within Ontario, introduce emergency paid sick leave and move schools to online or hybrid learning in areas where school outbreaks are significant.

Ford says officials will send mobile units into COVID-19 hotspots and to companies to ensure that they "target these businesses".

Multiple sources have since confirmed to CTV News Toronto that a stay-at-home order is being considered by the Ontario government but it's not clear if the order would be issued provincewide or would go into effect regionally.

"Going to the malls is not essential", the Premier said. "It means they can join the line if they have not already", she said.

There were 942 people hospitalized with the virus during the same period, though the Ministry of Health noted that 10 per cent of Ontario's hospitals do not submit data on weekends.

The province said 494 patients were in intensive care because of COVID-19 and 293 on a ventilator - 44 new patients were admitted in ICUs on Sunday.
