TORONTO — Ontario’s top doctor is set to hold a news conference Wednesday morning (March 9) about how the province plans to “live with and manage COVID-19.”

Dr. Kieran Moore is due to speak at 11 a.m.

Moore has said in recent weeks that mask mandates will be lifted in the province by the end of this month if public health trends continue.

He’s also said he wants to end vaccination policy requirements for some sectors soon, but hasn’t yet laid out a timeline for that.

The province has already begun rolling back pandemic measures, as proof-of-vaccination rules for certain businesses were no longer required as of this month.

The province has also lifted capacity limits for businesses and social gatherings.
