A “proportionate and timely” schedule for the rollback of Ontario’s COVID-19 public health restrictions will be out next week.
Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore says the province will not be rolling back on measures suddenly.
Instead, he calls it a slow, gradual and cautious approach that follows data, like what’s been done for the last year-and-a-half.
Moore says right now, the metrics he’s looking at to start easing public health measures look “very, very good”.
He adds the trends are good at present, but officials will still have to wait for the next seven to 14 days to see what the impact of the Thanksgiving weekend will be.
