Days after it was announced that hair and nail salons could re-open on April 12, Toronto mayor John Tory has said if COVID-19 cases continue to climb, that decision could be reversed, according to CP24.

With Saturday and Sunday reporting more than 2,400 cases each, the rolling seven-day average for new infections is over 2,000 for the first time in weeks.

"It's just common sense," Tory said in response to a viewer question about whether or not salons and other personal care places will re-open, adding that he "will not will not be supporting anything less than extremely cautious re-openings."

"The vast majority want a cautious approach on this because they do not want another lockdown," he said. "You look at it day-by-day. I think the province was smart to announce a date out into the future where we could have a look at doing this."

He said, "When I'm asked that question, 'will they for sure open?' I would say 'I wouldn't be certain of anything at this stage.'"
