Starting at 12:01am on Thursday morning, a stay-at-home order will be issued for people across Ontario, lasting for at least 28 days. The provincial government is asking you not to leave your house unless it is for essential reasons, which include grocery shopping, going to get medication from the pharmacy, and going to work if you can’t work from home. However, you can still exercise, and you can still get non-essentials from big box stores. Dr. Michael Warner, the Medical Director of Critical Care at Toronto’s Michael Garron Hospital, says the provincial government’s new measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 don’t go far enough. He joins Kristy Cameron on today’s Ottawa Now.
