"But we have to be very careful about how we use that PPE, it's in short supply," he said, noting that members of the public should keep their distance from firefighters during non-emergency calls.

In addition to the six firefighters who were sickened, Ramagnano said more than 200 were off the job and in self-isolation.

A spokesman for Toronto Fire Services declined to comment on the diagnoses.

Meanwhile, Six Nations of the Grand River, a reserve in southwestern Ontario, recorded its first two cases, prompting its leadership to restrict access to the land by erecting checkpoints at entrances and exits.

Two new cases of COVID - 19 have been reported in Ontario , bringing the total number of cases to 20. Erica Vella has details on the new cases as well as discussions at Queen’s Park about proposed measures that the province’s official opposition is pushing for.

He said officials will monitor people coming in and out of the reserve, calling the move a drastic step in their fight against COVID-19.

"The strongest resources we have are our people and our knowledge," Hill said. "Now is the time to step up and to put that knowledge into action so we can control and slow the spread of the virus through Six Nations of the Grand River territory."

And as school closures were set to stretch into their third week, the Toronto District School Board firmed up plans for helping students continue course work online.

It was asking parents whose children don't have access to computers or internet at home to provide information to the board so that it could lend out devices to those who need them.

The move comes after the province announced it would make sure students have access to such resources.

Education Minister Stephen Lecce said last week that it was a priority to help students continue to get credits for their classes.

Lecce also told parents that no graduating student would have their ability to graduate affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
