Province top officials pondering over Peel Region’s re-opening

Ontario’s health minister says the province is carefully considering Peel Region’s request to delay the loosening of restrictions in Mississauga and Brampton.

Christine Elliott says the province’s top doctor will be looking at new pandemic data today that will inform his recommendation on what should be done for Peel Region and Toronto, the two COVID-19 hot spots that are seeking the two-week delay.

The Medical Officers of Health of both Peel and Toronto have told their provincial counterpart that lifting the stay-at-home order and other restrictions next week will lead to more death and illness.

Both Peel’s Dr. Lawrence Loh and Toronto’s Dr. Eileen de Villa want the pandemic measures to remain in place until at least March 9.

They say they are concerned by the threat posed by the more contagious variants of the virus and said hospitalizations due to COVID-19 are still too high.
