Toronto’s mayor says he’s meeting on Tuesday with city staff on plans to reopen Toronto once the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
But John Tory says he and others, don’t know yet when that date will come.
“I have somebody on my staff for example, who’s on a call with other international cities, listening to them talk about what they’re doing,” Mayor Tory told CP24 Tuesday morning, “We are planning for it. My job is to do the planning on how you go about making sure you have the transit in place and different things happening, the medical officer of health’s job is to tell us when and at what speed we can do a reopening.”
The mayor says he knows Toronto residents want the city to reopen sooner rather than later, which is why he says the medical experts keep telling us to stay home and practice physical distancing.
