Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, Dr. David Williams, indicated that of the 170 new COVID-19 cases in the province, 86 are from Windsor-Essex, while 27 and from Toronto and 28 from Peel.

Dr. Williams said most cases in Windsor-Essex are from two or three farms, and at least 76 cases are farm workers.

“We may have a day where we actually have less than 100 for the province,” Ontario’s chief medical officer of health said. “And in essence, in one way we do, but in consideration of a very much sequestered outbreak that put us well over.”

“I’d like to see us continue to have some days reported under 100 [cases].”

When asked if there is a chance that large gathering, like arena concerts, would be able to happen before there is COVID-19 vaccine, Dr. Williams stressed these gathering are very risky.

“We’re open to some ideas but…those are certainly high risk events that we have very little control over,” he said.

Dr. Williams added that physical distancing would have to be in place, which would also require a financial consideration for the business operating the event.
