Ontario Premier Doug Ford will reportedly announce the closure of borders with Quebec and Manitoba in order to stem the third wave of COVID-19, reports TVA Nouvelles.
Ford has scheduled to hold a press briefing at around 4 pm EST.
A source confirmed to CP24 that the Ford press conference will not include the announcement of a curfew, despite the province having another record-setting day in cases, logging nearly 5,000 on Friday once again.
Other public health measures were discussed, however, including the shutting down of construction projects deemed non-essential, and fining businesses who refuse to let eligible employees work from home.
The curfew option was mentioned yesterday by the province's Solicitor General Sylvia Jones, who said that implementing a curfew would bring about its own challenges, noting that she was worried about an increasingly frustrated populace.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
