Ontario Premier Doug Ford addressed media on Tuesday, providing updates on the province's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tuesday's press conference had a heavy emphasis on the province's new math curriculum for Grades 1-8 today, which will be implemented for the 2020-2021 school year.

The new curriculum will have three primary areas of focus: Financial literacy, coding and computer programming, and learning and recalling number facts.

Ford also announced that EQAO testing will be cancelled for the 2020-2021 school year.

The math curriculum will be made available on the Curriculum and Resources website, provided by the province, which will allow students the full curriculum.

Lecce said that the move to bring in a new math curriculum was a timely one, as math marks have stagnated or declined in the province over the last decade.

Yesterday, Ford announced that as of June 24, the city of Toronto and the Peel region will be allowed to enter Stage Two, leaving only Windsor-Essex county as the sole area in Ontario that will remain in stage one.

Ford said he stood with the people of Windsor-Essex, and that more help was on the way, namely for farmers and the agriculture industry, where most of the county's cases stem from.

Ford also said that he would not be getting a hair cut until everyone in the province could get one, again saying he stands by those in Windsor-Essex.

Regarding masks, Ford said he was "encouraging everybody" to wear a mask, though he did not comment on a "no mask, no service" policy.

Ford would then go on to scold younger Ontarians who were seen across Ontario beaches this past weekend.

"You think you can't get COVID?" said Ford. Ford then went on to list COVID statistics regarding young people.
