Coronavirus Canada Updates: Scarborough General, Toronto Rehab declare COVID-19 outbreaks
Coronavirus Canada Updates: Scarborough General, Toronto Rehab declare COVID-19 outbreaks The restrictions were first put in place for Toronto, Peel and Ottawa on Friday, but have now been extended after the province recorded 407 new cases on Saturday — the most in a 24-hour stretch since June 2. It also comes a day after Ontario recorded 402 cases. Previously, gathering limits were set at 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors. “Folks, the alarm bells are ringing,” said Ford on Saturday. “Too much of it is being tied to people who aren’t following the rules, people who think it's OK to hold parties, carrying on as if things are back to normal. They aren't. ... We can't have these wild parties right now. It's just way, way too risky.” For those who organize a gathering that exceeds the new limit, they can face a minimum fine of $10,000 under the current emergency orders. If you're caught going to one of these parties, “you can get slapped with a $750 fine,” said Ford. These new restrictions do not apply to events held in facilities such as movie theatres, restaurants, banquet halls, places of worship, gyms, or convention centers.

The province reported 184 more COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, bringing the provincial total to 32,554. The province also reported 11 more deaths related to COVID-19, pushing the provincial death toll to 2,538.

The latest reporting comes as the province plans on moving more parts of Ontario into Phase 2 of reopening this Friday. All regions except Toronto, Peel, and Windsor-Essex will be in Phase 2 as of June 19. 70 per cent of Monday’s reported cases were in Toronto and Peel, health officials said.
