TORONTO — Premier Doug Ford is set to announce details today about Ontario’s stage two of reopening.

He will lay out the plan at a news conference this afternoon with Health Minister Christine Elliott, Finance Minister Rod Phillips, Economic Development Minister Vic Fedeli and Labour Minister Monte McNaughton.

Ontario entered its first stage of reopening on May 19.

Ford has said that stage two will not begin immediately, but he had indicated that he would reveal details this week about it, in order to provide businesses with notice to start getting ready.

The premier has also said that health officials have been looking at a regional approach to reopening.

Two-thirds of the province’s cases are in the Greater Toronto Area, while some public health units are reporting few active COVID-19 cases.
