Mississauga, Brampton residents will have to stay home two more weeks, outoor activities begin June 2
Mississauga and Brampton will join the rest of Ontario by remaining under a stay-at-home for another two weeks.
Premier Doug Ford has just announced the current lockdown measure - which was to expire on May 20 - will be extended to June 2.
This move essentially shuts down any outdoor activities that were anticipated for the upcoming Victoria Day long-weekend as Ontario health officials believe gatherings during the holiday will contribute to the spread of COVID-19.
"If we manage the next few weeks I think we can have a good summer," said Ford.
However, the premier did say he was prepared to loosen restrictions on outdoor activities once the stay-at-home order ends on June 2.
The premier also said people as young as 12 will be able to start receiving the vaccine by May 31.
