Ontario’s top medical official is recommending that all bars and restaurants close, with the exception of those that do take-out and delivery.
Dr. David Williams is also recommending that all private schools and daycares also close, along with churches and other places of worship.
He says people should not gather in groups larger than 50, in line with a federal recommendation.
Ontario has already ordered all public schools stay closed for two weeks after March break.
The province announced earlier Monday that it is delaying the release of its full budget as it prepares to weather economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Finance Minister Rod Phillips will deliver a one-year economic outlook on March 25th, which will detail the fiscal resources that will be available for sectors such as health care and municipalities.
