Ontario has made an announcement that essential workers will be receiving a much needed break on Friday and Sunday.
Premier Doug Ford noted that on Easter Sunday and Good Friday, all stores will be closed.
“I have an important message for essential workers. We have been listening to business owners and employees, the truth is that everyone working in our grocery stores, pharmacies, our truck drivers and those working the line, they have been working day and night for weeks to keep the food and medicine we need on the shelves.”
“One way we are saying thank you, is making sure they have this Friday and Sunday off. They deserve a break and some quality time with their families.” Ford said adding that the closures are being mandated by the province.
“Stores will be open on Thursday, Saturday and of course on Monday and on wards. Let's give our workers the break they have earned. Thank you to all our heroes out there, our health care workers, our essential workers, all the care givers and truck drivers. You are incredible, we owe you everything, thank you and god bless the people of Ontario.”
