Premier Ford provides a COVID-19 update | June 17

Premier Doug Ford did not make any new announcements at his daily briefing today. He marked three months since declaring a state of emergency in Ontario by reiterating the actions his government has taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, the state of emergency has been extended by another two weeks. Details on the extension can be found here.

Health Minister Christine Elliott noted that there have been fewer than 200 new COVID-19 cases identified across the province for four consecutive days. She also expressed optimism about “fewer and fewer active cases,” citing a decline of 1,400 active cases since last week and positive tests at an “all-time low.”
