This is the first time someone has given us at least an idea of a finish line.

The problem is, it's way off in the distance.

Premier Doug Ford spoke with our sister station CFRA in Ottawa, and says he thinks the curve in new cases will flatten in either June or July.

That mean social distancing and work-from-home rules will remain in effect until at least then.

Ford admitted he doesn't have a crystal ball, and he says he hopes it's sooner.

But the Premier says we're still waiting for the impact to be felt from the snowbirds, and March Break travellers returning to Canada.

He says he's heard that as many as a million people may have recently returned to this country.
