Ontario’s doctors are recommending the province ease restrictions on outdoor activities where it’s safe to do so, like golf, basketball and tennis.  Read the Ontario Medical Association release here

During question period, Premier Doug Ford was pressed to answer why he ingored this same advice from the province’s science table.

“And when I asked Dr. Brown from the science table, he has a little chart YES or NO for what you can do and what you can’t do, ” Ford explained. “And when it was outdoor playgrounds it had a big NO and YES if everyone wore a mask, but how many people when you drive by those playgrounds do you see wearing a mask, you don’t see anyone wearing a mask.”

But the Ontario Medical Association also says the province is not yet ready to lift the stay-at-home order next week while there are still 2,000 people testing positive every day.
