Premier Doug Ford will make an announcement with top health officials this afternoon as COVID-19 cases in the province remain high.

Ford will be joined by Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, and Dr. Barbara Yaffe, Associate Chief Medical Officer of Health.

On Tuesday, Ford said that the province will invest $300 million for restaurants to help offset fixed costs as indoor dining is now closed for at least 28 days in Toronto, Peel, and Ottawa.

Last week, the premier announced that Toronto, Peel, and Ottawa would have more restrictions to curb the rise in cases.

Now indoor dining, gyms, and cinemas will be closed for the next month.

There will also be a reduction in social gatherings and organized public events to a maximum of 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors when physical distancing can’t be maintained.

The press briefing will be at 1 pm from Queen’s Park.
