What comes after 'strongly recommending' the wearing of masks ? The public just doesn't seem interested

Ontario’s chief medical officer of health is “strongly recommending” that Ontarians wear masks in all indoor public settings, including in schools and in childcare settings, but stopped short of recommending a return to a mask mandate in the province.

Premier Ford has spoken out – wear a mask – but he won’t mandate it.

At a news conference on Monday, Dr. Kieran Moore said the province’s health system is facing “extraordinary pressures” with the ongoing circulation of COVID-19, the earlier than normal rise in Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), as well as influenza.

“What we are facing is a triple threat that requires our collective action and action to protect the most vulnerable in our communities, the very young, the very old and those with underlying medical issues and to ensure that our healthcare system remains able to care for Ontarians when they need it,” Moore said.

Will the Mayor take a lead and ask anyone planning to attend the inauguration Tuesday evening wear a mask or watch the event on line.

Will the Judge who presides wear a mask as he or she swears in each member of Council wear a mask and ask that Council members do the same ?

    Agree completely. And at least The Gazette does not refer to Moore as Ontario’s’Top’ Doctor which clearly he is not. He is the CMOoH only.
