Ontario is now into the second wave of COVID-19 according to Dr. David Williams, Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health. 

Ontario is reporting 700 new cases of COVID-19 Monday, the highest daily case increase since the beginning of the pandemic with the majority of the new cases in the Greater Toronto Area and Ottawa.

Williams says people became too casual as virus numbers had improved in late August and must now be more vigilant.

Meantime, at a news conference Monday, Premier Doug Ford said the second wave has the potential to be worse than the first experienced in the spring.

Ford is urging people to follow public health rules to limit the wave's severity.

The Premier also announced an additional $52-million to hire 3,700 more nurses and personal support workers to help address the virus.
