Today is the deadline for written submissions from the public to the commission examining the devastating impact of COVID-19 on long-term care homes.

Ontario's Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission says anything sent by the public after today may not be considered for its final report.

That report is due April 30 and the commission still has a few more video hearings.

The commission had requested an extension to investigate the pandemic's second wave further and to get crucial information the province.

Minister of Long-Term Care Merrilee Fullerton denied the request.

More than 3,700 residents of nursing homes have died due to COVID-19 since the pandemic began last year.
