The premier said “anyone who feels they need a test will be able to get a test.” Then it was appointment-only.
Then there was “a darker shade of grey,” which was also a “lockdown” — but for most of the province only after Boxing Day. The border was still closed, but you could fly to Cancun or wherever. Still can.
Children were going to go back to school, despite the lockdown. Then they didn’t. Many will again soon. (Probably.)
Now there’s a stay-at-home order. Only leave for essential reasons or you’ll get a ticket — maybe. But non-essential retail can open until 8 p.m. Work from home or else go to work, whichever. No cottage, unless it’s essential. Use your best judgment.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced a provincewide stay-at-home order on Tuesday. His office later released an FAQ for journalists.
Further details are expected to be announced Wednesday.
