Ontario's top doctor is set to release new COVID-19 testing guidelines today, as the province releases details on its reopening plan.

The new guidelines from chief medical officer of health Dr. David Williams will say anyone with symptoms can be tested.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says in a tweet that doing so ``will help identify and contain new cases and monitor any shifts in community spread to keep Ontarians safe.''

She says nearly every long-term care home resident and worker has now been tested, so testing will expand to other vulnerable populations, including people in retirement homes, shelters and group homes.

Premier Doug Ford is expected to provide more details today on the first stage of Ontario's reopening plan.

Earlier this week, Ford teased ``good news'' would be coming, saying people have been following pandemic protocols.
