Toronto and Peel Region are moving into “lockdown” effective at 12:01 Monday as a way to curb a steep increase in the number of COVID-19 cases.
The shutdown will last a minimum of 28 days, equal to two incubation periods for the coronavirus. The province will also fine people $750 for violating the public-health rules.
Around 80% of cases reported in recent days are from regions in red zones. At the same time, hospitalizations have increased by 22% and intensive care admissions have risen by 50%.
Health officials and local politicians in Toronto and Peel have advocated and publicly supported additional, more far-reaching restrictions. Both areas are registering consistently high daily case counts and alarming positivity rates. Local officials in York have instead pushed for very targeted measures.
