28 day stay-at-home order starting Thursday in Mississauga and Brampton
Mississauga, Brampton and Ontario will be going back to a stay-at-home order again.
Ontario will issue a new stay-at-home order to try and control a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, sources tell The Canadian Press.
Premier Doug Ford is expected to make the announcement at a news conference this afternoon.
Sources say the order will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Thursday morning and last for four weeks.
Only stores selling essential goods will remain open during the four-week period.
According to the Ministry of Education schools will not be a part of the stay at home order.
Ford's cabinet made the decision about the stay-at-home order during a meeting Tuesday night.
The premier hinted at new restrictions coming during a news conference on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, vaccine appointments for Ontarians aged 60 and older opened in all of the province's public health units on Wednesday morning.
Also, students at public schools in Toronto started taking classes fully online following an order from the city's top doctor.
The city's public health unit said the measure is necessary as new COVID-19 variants pose a greater risk of hospitalization and death.
Classes in Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph also moved online Wednesday morning after Peel Region took schools virtual Tuesday.
