Medical masks, such as surgical and N95 masks, should be reserved for use by health care workers, those providing direct care, first responders and individuals who are ill and must leave their home for essential reasons such as seeking medical care, picking up medication or groceries.

The province says 984 COVID-19 patients are hospitalized, with 155 being treated in intensive care units. The number of new patients logged on Wednesday then dipped down to 390. "They're all going flock to Kingston, and I don't think that'd be very fair for that jurisdiction to have everyone coming in in one shot like that".

When asked about a possible timeframe for Stage 2 of the reopening plan, Ford said if cases continue to go up he "won't hesitate to roll things back again".

"Unless we have proactive public health measures - to test, isolate, contact trace, and support patients and contacts with COVID-19 - we're not going to put this in a rearview mirror". Once test samples are collected and received from front line staff, patients, residents and children, labs are providing test results generally within 24 to 48 hours.

As of 10:30 am on May 21, Ontario is reporting 24,187 cases of the novel coronavirus in the province. That number is up compared to 7,382 tests conducted on Tuesday and 5,813 tests conducted on Monday, but down significantly compared to the province's goal set out earlier in the pandemic - hitting 20,000 tests per day. In partnership with Ontario Health, Public Health Ontario, local public health units, and hospital and community laboratories, our government has developed an integrated laboratory system which has established the province as a national leader in daily testing volumes per capita. "Can I give you an exact date? I'm pushing the table as hard as I can", Premier Doug Ford told reporters on Thursday.

According to Peel Public Health's COVID-19 website (which was updated at 12:00 pm on May 21), 3,798 people have been diagnosed in the region and 235 people have died of the virus. "We will get there".

"Let's start getting out there and testing everyone possible", Ford said Thursday, encouraging people with mild symptoms to get checked at assessment centers that previously rejected them.

There are now 5,051 test samples under investigation in Ontario. "Today's announcement gives parents certainty, knowing that their children can continue to learn safely at home and that we have a plan for child care as we work to gradually reopen more of our economy, when it is safe to do so".
