Toronto & Peel Will Officially Be Moving Into Stage 3 On Friday

The total number of deaths across the province stands at 2,769.

The encouraging numbers come on the same day the Ontario government gave Toronto and Peel the green light to advance to Stage 3, allowing many additional businesses to reopen and indoor dining to resume on Friday.

According to the latest data, 28 regions in the province reported five or fewer new cases today and with 174 more resolved cases, recoveries outpaced new infections by 98.

"Looking at those numbers and based on the criteria including the number at the cases in the hospitals and factoring the challenges in other areas who moved to stage, the decision was leave Windsor-Essex in stage two".

During his news briefing on Wednesday, Ford said he's doing everything he can to help the region, including extra support.

"It's everyday families and small business owners who will suffer in a region that's faced the highest levels of pandemic unemployment anywhere in Ontario", said Natyshak. I just ask everyone, please have patience.

"As upsetting as it might be for some people, it's a good decision to protect the safety of everybody", Alana Palameta told CTV News.

Ontario Health said it selected Switch Health out of 15 potential vendors and on Tuesday it confirmed that another group called DriverCheck has also been awarded a contract to perform testing in the province and Windsor-Essex region. "But we can't do that and risk moving completely backwards to a Stage 1 position perhaps if we do things too quickly no one wants to see that happen".

Remaining in Stage 3 hinges on the ability of Torontonians to follow anti-virus measures.

"More businesses and services are able to reopen thanks to the collective efforts of all Ontarians to limit the spread of the virus", said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, in a statement.

The change means bars and restaurants in Toronto and Peel can begin serving patrons indoors and gyms, movie theatres and playgrounds can open.

Dilkens said the quickest way to ensure the region moves forward is for people to work together and continue to follow the guidelines that have been in place for months, people to act "like we're in Stage1".

In Stage 3, almost all businesses and public spaces can reopen, with health measures in place, and people can gather in larger groups.
