Premier Doug Ford is asking Ontarians not to travel for the Easter long-weekend, warning that he won’t hesitate to lock things down again. “I did it before I’ll do it again,” he told reporters.
Ford issued the warning during a news conference on Tuesday, as officials deal with a third wave of COVID-19.
“I’m extremely concerned with the situation that we’re seeing and the numbers going up,” said Ford. “I’m asking you don’t make plans for Easter.”
The news came the same day the Province reported the largest single-day spike in intensive care admissions since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I won’t hesitate, believe me, to lock things down so we can protect the ICU capacities of the hospitals,” said Ford.
Ontario health officials confirmed 2,336 more cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday.
