Schools in the Peel region of Ontario will be closed from Tuesday onwards, according to a report at the Toronto Sun.

This was a unilateral decision made by Peel's Medical Officer of Health Dr. Lawrence Loh using special emergency powers.

Ontario's Progressive Conservative Education Minister had announced earlier that schools would stay open during the province's near-month-long lockdown.

Peel's decision also contradicts Ontario's Chief Medical Officer who also declared that schools were safe, saying that COVID transmissions rarely take place in schools.

This story is breaking and will be updated.
