At 1 pm Wednesday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford will announce the reopening of long-term care homes to indoor visitors beginning on July 22. Minister of Long-Term Care Merrilee Fullerton as well as Minister of Health Christine Elliott will also be featured in the announcement according to CTV News.
Ontario’s long-term care facilities have been closed to indoor visitors for several months due to lockdown measures in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. On advice from Ontario's Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Williams, the province limited visitation to “essential visitors” beginning in late March.
More recently, all residents have been allowed a single outdoor weekly visit. Today’s announcement will finally allow indoor visits for the first time since the beginning of the outbreak.
