In Toronto, Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, and Dr. Dirk Huyer, coordinator of the provincial outbreak response, provide an update on the province’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. They present a recommendation for the resumption of in-person classes at elementary schools, which is scheduled for the following week. Earlier, Ontario Premier Doug Ford highlighted a 116-per-cent increase in the COVID-19 positivity rate among children aged 13 and younger compared to the rate recorded before the holiday season.
