Toronto & Peel Will Officially Be Moving Into Stage 3 On Friday

The encouraging numbers come on the same day the Ontario government gave Toronto and Peel the green light to advance to Stage 3, allowing many additional businesses to reopen and indoor dining to resume on Friday.

Additionally, Natyshak said the details of the contract were not made public. "Premier Doug Ford had a very hard decision to make in terms of reopening our economy and he made it with great care, relying on the advice of health officials and case counts in our region".

"Looking at those numbers and based on the criteria including the number at the cases in the hospitals and factoring the challenges in other areas who moved to stage, the decision was leave Windsor-Essex in stage two".

"There are now significant instances of community spread and workplace outbreaks", said McNamara.

"COVID-19 doesn't go away just because we're in Stage 3".

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit reported another death related to COVID-19 Wednesday.

Since the first reported case on March 20, the local total has reached 2,275 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 1440 people who have recovered.

There are 1,440 cases resolved while outbreaks are reported at three long-term care and retirement homes. She was admitted to the hospital on July 24. The total number of deaths across the province stands at 2,769.

However, it's important to note that many places can't reopen yet, like amusement parks.

"We have to work together and we have to figure out a way for us to move forward, everyone has to do their part, as the individual, as the workplace, as the community as the leadership, we all have to work together to do our part to contain it", Dr. Ahmed said.

He says the province continues to monitor the COVID-19 trends in Windsor-Essex. "His decisions have led directly to this situation".

Ahmed said he spoke with public health officials Tuesday night ahead of Wednesday's announcement.

The premier said the province is "throwing everything at this" to take of the people in Windsor-Essex. "Anything I can do we'll make it happen".

Toronto and Peel will join the 31 other regions that have already entered stage 3. "Do not have these big gatherings because we are risking everything".

After several days of modest case increases, Brampton is finally joining the rest of the GTA in entering Stage 3 of the province's three-part reopening plan.

In Stage 3, almost all businesses and public spaces can reopen, with health measures in place, and people can gather in larger groups.
