NewsAlert: New restrictions for Ontario amid dire COVID predictions

TORONTO — Ontario is extending its stay-at-home order to six weeks, restricting interprovincial travel and limiting outdoor gatherings in an effort to fight a losing battle with COVID-19.

It is also closing all non-essential construction and recreational facilities such as tennis courts and playgrounds.

Premier Doug Ford announced the restrictions Friday among several new anti-COVID-19 measures.

Ford says the province is on its heels as the pandemic slams the province.

Other measures include reduced capacity to only 25 per cent for big box stores and smaller religious gatherings.

More to come.
