BURLINGTON, ON

 

The message from the Science Table at 1:00 pm was direct.

You cannot meet with people who are not part of your household indoors

We are way above the acceptable mobility threshold – if we do not reduce it the infections will spread leading to catastrophic conditions.

If people you meet are not part of your household – you meet them outside – six feet apart and wearing a mask

Get vaccinated when it is your turn.

Those instructions plus about 15 charts showing how big a mess we are in led to a 4:00 pm Press event with the Premier who put the province in the tightest movement situation since the War Measures Act was invoked in 1970.

The Premier said effectively immediately personal mobility was being restricted. You do not go anywhere other than outside for some exercise and when you do that – you do so alone or with family members.

Police and bylaw officers will be given the right to stop yo and ask you where you are going and why – and if they don’t like the answer you give they have the authority to issue you a ticket which the Deputy Premier said would amount to $750.

The police and bylaw officers will have the right to pull you over, ask where you are going and why.

Interesting note – it is the Chief Justice of the province who set that amount.

The Premier said mobility was being limited; enforcement will be increased and vaccinations will be prioritized and focused on those people most likely to get infected.

They were identified as people who have to work and live in households with people who also have to leave for work.

Big Box stores are limited to 25% of capacity

Worship – not more than 10 people

Golf courses are closed.

All non-essential construction is stopped.

Weddings limited to 10 people

The borders with Quebec and Manitoba are closed.

The province is working on having the borders closed to international travellers.

“We had few options left” said the Premier in his news briefing. “We are doing this at massive cost to the economy.”

The current Stay at Home order is being extended two more weeks.
