According to CTV News, Premier Doug Ford is expected to announce a stay-at-home order on Wednesday that would apply to the entire province.
This is the third state of emergency in Ontario since the pandemic began.
Last Thursday, the government pushed the emergency brake to begin a province-wide shutdown Saturday with restrictions similar to the previous Grey-Lockdown zones.
That four-week measure, similar to one implemented in January, requires people to stay home except for essential trips like grocery shopping, accessing health-care services, work that can not be done remotely and exercise.
Over the April break, education workers who provide direct daily support to students with special education needs across the province, and all education workers in high-risk neighbourhoods in Toronto and Peel, will be eligible for vaccination.
It will then roll out to "priority neighbourhoods" in other hot spot regions, including York, Ottawa, Hamilton, Halton, and Durham, before a provincewide rollout, which Ford's government has not yet provided further detail on. But such an order was recommended by the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table as being one of the retrictions necessary to control the spread of COVID-19 variants. Pop-up clinics will also be set-up in highly impacted neighborhoods, including at faith-based locations and community centres in those hot spots, in collaboration with public health units and community organizations within those communities.
The province says that 108,000 more doses of COVID-19 vaccine were administered on April 7, bringing the total number administered to more than 2.8 million.
Rapid testing continues to be deployed in workplaces for asymptomatic staff in sectors such as manufacturing, warehousing, supply chain, mining, construction and food processing.
Variants are more transmissible and increase both the risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19, the table said, which estimates they now account for about 65 per cent of all new infections in the province.
It's the second straight day more than 100,000 vaccines have been given out in the province.
"What we do until we start achieving mass immunisation will be the difference between life and death for thousands of people", he said.
Colorado does require some form of ID when voters register for the first time, and whenever they vote in person. Major League Baseball opted to move the game out of Atlanta due to voting laws passed in Georgia last month.
The halt comes after a number of people under 60 died from a rare brain blood clot after being injected with the vaccine. The UK has secured a total of 457 million Covid vaccine doses, of which 100 million are from AstraZeneca.
Besides, 4,57,78,875 and 7,65,354 beneficiaries aged more than 45 have been administered the first and second dose respectively. Out of which 33,65,597 beneficiaries were vaccinated for the first dose and 3,05,645 beneficiaries received the second dose.
If multiple cases of an unknown origin emerged, "we would likely suspend flights for a set period of time", she said. Ms Ardern, however, warned about the possibility of travel being disrupted going forward if cases are detected.
York, Durham and Halton regions said Tuesday that they do not plan to follow suit in shutting down schools for the time being. Teachers have also argued that they should be prioritized for vaccinations if they are required to teach in the classroom.
The path of the pandemic and the ability of the authorities to provide policy support will be important for that outcome. The IMF has upgraded both its United Kingdom and global forecasts compared with what it projected in January.
Seventy-five percent of people older than 65 have now received at least one shot, and more than 55% of them are fully vaccinated. We still have a lot of work to do. "We're still in a life-and-death race against this virus".
Furthermore, 60,048 people were discharged after recovery on Saturday, taking the nationwide recovery tally to 1,16,29,289. Last week, it opened up vaccinations to all those over 45 years old to speed up its flagging national inoculation drive.
The Manatee County Public Safety Department said that 316 households were within the full evacuation area as of Saturday evening. A significant leak at a large pond of wastewater threatened to flood roads and burst a system that stores polluted waters.
