In what has become an almost daily routine, Premier Doug Ford will speak to reporters and the public live from Queen’s Park this afternoon at around 1 p.m.
Today, Ford will be joined by Health Minister Christine Elliott, Long-Term Care Minister Dr. Merrilee Fullerton and Finance Minister Rod Phillips.
Cases of COVID-19 continue to climb in the province, with 351 new cases confirmed today, bringing the provincial total to more than 1,700 positive cases.
On Saturday, Ford announced a ban on gatherings of more than five people as well as fines for businesses found to be price gouging during the pandemic. There is now a dedicated snitch line to report price gouging, 800-889-9768, which is staffed Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
