Ontario to implement new restrictions as variant cases rise

Peel's medical officer of health, Dr. Lawrence Loh, exercised the power to close schools under Section 22 of the Ontario Health Protection and Promotion Act.

"We made a massive move last week by basically shutting down the entire province", Ford said.

On Tuesday, Toronto Public Health followed the Peel and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph regions in closing schools to in-person learning until April 18.

A press release from the City of Toronto states that though officials "appreciate that this decision places additional burden on many including students, staff and families", the action is "in an effort to keep our communities safe and prevent further spread of COVID-19". "Stricter lockdowns have been shown to be effective in other countries to control transmission while vaccine campaigns progressed to achieve sufficient population coverage to suppress transmission". Schools will be closed for at least two weeks, starting Tuesday, although the second week is the scheduled April break for staff and students.

Infections have been surging in Ontario lately, with three days of new case counts near or above 3,000 after a week of daily case counts over 2,000.

Active cases are the highest Ottawa has ever seen and the city set a one-day case count record on Saturday with 240 people testing positive.

The three doctors also appealed to Williams to move schools to online learning in regions with significant COVID-19 outbreaks, remove businesses from the list of essential services, and implement 50 per cent staffing limits for those businesses deemed essential.

"Given our overall COVID-19 situation in the region at this time, I am not planning to issue a section 22 class order to close in-person learning for Waterloo Region schools".

They're asking for stronger measures than the current province-wide shutdown, pointing to case numbers that continued to rise in Toronto and Peel during the Grey-Lockdown, which had restrictions very similar to the shutdown.

Tougher public health restrictions could be on the way.
