Ontario is reportedly heading into another 4-week lockdown starting this weekend “to try and curb the rise in COVID-19 cases across the province,” several sources told 680 News, who first reported this Wednesday.
Every region of the province will be placed into Grey-Lockdown zone beginning 12:01 a.m. Saturday morning.
Exact details of the lockdown measures are expected to be confirmed Thursday.
At this moment, it is being reported that patios will have to close while restaurants and bars can remain open for takeout and delivery.
Nonessential retail will be allowed to remain open with a 25 per cent capacity limit as is currently permitted in grey zones.
The only sport permitted will be golf, all other outdoor activities will not be allowed.
Sources are telling 680 News that schools will remain open next week as they prepare to head into the delayed spring break.
During Wednesday’s press conference, Premiere Doug Ford hinted restrictions were coming.
