Ontario to Lower Limits on Social Gatherings After COVID-19 Cases Increase

TORONTO—Ontario will lower the limits on social gatherings in a bid to stem a recent increase in COVID-19 cases.

Premier Doug Fords office has confirmed the move but wont say when the new health guidelines will be available.

The current limit on social gatherings is 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors.

Provincial health officials have attributed the spike in cases largely to people not following public health guidelines at social gatherings.

Ford has promised to take actions in the regions where most of the cases have emerged—Toronto, Peel, and Ottawa.

He has also not ruled out further lockdowns in those areas if virus case numbers arent brought under control.

Ontario is reporting 315 new cases of COVID-19 today, and two new deaths from the virus.

There were also 154 cases newly marked as resolved over the past 24 hours.

The total number of cases in Ontario now stands at 45,383, which includes 2,822 deaths and 40,245 cases classified as resolved.
