CFRA Live – As Ontario businesses return to full-capacity, how do we avoid a future COVID flareup?


The Doug Ford government unveiled a gradual reopening approach for the province of Ontario on Friday afternoon.

However, several key factors could put a dent into these reopening stages at any given time, such as the emergence of new variants and sharp increases of new cases. Ontario’s Premier is confident that this game plan will help the province manage COVID levels and avoid lockdowns, especially throughout the Winter months.

He joins Andrew Pinsent on today’s edition of CFRA Live.
