Premier Doug Ford and Education Minister, Stephen Lecce, are set to make an announcement on Monday afternoon in Toronto.
On Monday, the province announced that door-to-door trick-or-treating should not take place in the provincial hotspots, Toronto, Peel, York Region, and Ottawa.
Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health, said, “I’d like to remind everyone to take extra precautions to ensure you are keeping yourself and your families safe.”
Williams said that children can still dress up and participate in virtual activities and parties, organize a Halloween candy hunt with people living in their own household, carve pumpkins, have a movie night, share scary stories, or decorate their front lawn.
The press conference will take place at 1 pm.
