Ontario will begin third provincial shutdown on Saturday, April 3, 2021

Ontario Premier Doug Ford announces the province-wide “emergency brake” on Thursday Apr. 1 2021

"My friends, we're facing a very, very serious situation", said Ford.

Ontario is pulling its emergency brake and putting the province into at least a 4-week long shutdown beginning Saturday. Our vaccine rollout is steadily increasing, and I encourage everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated.

But Shoots argues that healthare workers at high-risk of contracting the virus in the workplace should be fully vaccinated in order to protect both them-and their patients. The region was also shutdown last spring and from mid-December until Feb.16.

Outdoor public events and social gatherings must comply with public health advice and have no more than five people.

Weddings, funerals, and religious services, rites or ceremonies can continue with 15 per cent occupancy per room indoors, or to the maximum number of people who maintain a two-metre distance outdoors.

Health unit regions transitioned back to the COVID-19 Response Framework, with five colour-coded levels of varying restrictions.

"We did hear informally from others, not directly from the ministry that there has been some discussion going on", says Ahmed.

Child care centres, courts, government services, mental health and addictions support, social services and collective bargaining (limited to 10 people) are permitted to open.

In addition, Ford says the government is doing everything they can to keep kids in class.

"This is a top priority", said Ford. "We will do whatever it takes to protect the people of Ontario".

Windsor is now in the red zone, the fourth tier of the Ontario COVID-19 Response Framework.

Windsor-Essex has been doing better than the provincial average for numerous indicators.

The restaurant sector has been " scapegoated" even though it's not a significant part of the problem, Barclay said. Child care settings will continue to adhere to stringent health and safety measures so that they remain safe places for children and staff.

Three schools in Woodstock have been temporarily closed recently amid COVID-19 outbreaks, the latest one this week by the Thames Valley board, Southwestern Ontario's largest school system.

Ford announced a province-wide emergency break in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Deputy Premier and Minister of Health Christine Elliott explained, "We saw that last time that it had tremendous ill-effect".

Dr. Brown said at that point, with 800 people in the ICUs, "We are not able to provide all the care as well as we would want to people".

At this time, schools will remain open.

"Small businesses are exhausted of being a scapegoat for the Ontario government's lack of planning or foresight", said Ryan Mallough, CFIB director of provincial affairs for Ontario, in a statement.

"If we don't think this and take action, we will be in deep trouble", the Premier continued. "I can tell you, it kills me to cut off the outdoor dining, it does I'm getting calls my phones, blowing up".

Dr. Brown says short-term case projections will depend entirely on the public health measures implemented by the government and vaccination rates.
