Ontario to provide update on reopening plan for provincial economy
Premier Doug Ford is expected to provide more details today on the first stage of Ontario's reopening plan.
Earlier this week, Ford teased "good news" would be coming, saying the people of the province have followed pandemic protocols.
He said the plan will include reopening more low-risk workplaces, seasonal businesses, and essential services.
Stage 1 in the province's reopening framework also includes allowing more people to gather at certain events such as funerals.
It would also permit hospitals to resume some non-urgent surgeries.
The province has extended its state of emergency to keep pandemic public health measures in place until June 2.
