Ontario to report 2 days worth of coronavirus case data today

TORONTO – Ontario is expected to be worth two days of COVID-19 statistics today following yesterday’s data drop for Easter Sunday.

Health Minister Christine Elliott will share the number of new diagnoses and vaccinations tomorrow.

The province also chose not to share statistics on Good Friday, but on Saturday reported that there had been more than 3,000 cases of COVID-19 for two days.

School boards had urged students and teachers to take learning materials home for the Easter long weekend in case the government chose to close schools to monitor urgent cases of COVID-19.

But Prime Minister Doug Ford says schools remain open because they are a closed disaster for the mental health of children.

Instead, the province introduced a “shutdown” that first thing went into effect Saturday morning.

It closed restaurant restaurants and terraces for restaurant, and also forced to close services for personal care.

But retailers – both essential and non-essential – can stay open with capacity limits in place.
