“I don’t think the guidelines could be any clearer,” Ford said Tuesday afternoon at his daily media briefing.

“I’m not cancelling Halloween. What we’re highly recommending is that you don’t go door-to-door in the hot spot areas.”

Ontario reported 821 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, including 326 in Toronto, 136 in Peel and 64 in York, three of the province’s “hot spots.” Ottawa Public Health reported 78 new cases in the city, the province’s fourth designated COVID-19 hot spot.

Asked how the province would enforce compliance if, for example, parents in Ottawa choose to drive their kids outside the city limits to trick-or-treat, Ford said it would be a matter of trust.

“If you want to load your kids in the car and drive 30 miles — we don’t have enough police. We can’t be checking every single car. If someone does that or if they have a house party then they’re being reckless and being careless. The only way we’re going to get through this is by following the guidelines that have been proven here and around the world.”

COVID-19: Province boosts virus management, tracing staff; MacLeod says restrictions on restaurants, gyms will stay; 45 new cases in Ottawa

  COVID-19: Province boosts virus management, tracing staff; MacLeod says restrictions on restaurants, gyms will stay; 45 new cases in Ottawa Ontario Premier Doug Ford, when asked about comments by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that appeared to criticize provinces on their testing and contact tracing ability, said he believes “we’re kicking everyone’s butt” on testing. He also said as a province, Ontario has faced “every hurdle” from acquiring enough personal protective equipment to testing, and did so together.

The call to avoid trick-or-treating has been backed by medical officers of health in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, doctors Vera Etches and Paul Roumeliotis, respectively.

Meanwhile, Ford also defended his government’s decision to allow dance studios to open inside the four hot zones, even while gyms and fitness clubs are prevented from having indoor classes.

The difference, he said, is that the dance studios have the same children coming in for lessons, almost like the cohort system used by the Ministry of Education for its COVID-19 safety.

“It’s not too much different from schools,” Ford said.

The risk, he said, is much less than at fitness centre like the Hamilton spin studio where an outbreak exposed “thousands” to the virus.

“I think we’re comparing apples and oranges there.”

Ontario reported 821 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, including 326 in Toronto, 136 in Peel and 64 in York, three of the province’s “hot zones.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also said his family will follow Etches’s suggestion and the Trudeau children will not be trick-or-treating door-to-door this year.

“We know that it’s not easy, and it’s frustrating,” Trudeau said Tuesday. “Unfortunately all of us are having to make sacrifices of different types, particularly kids.”

Trudeau said his family may follow a friend’s suggestion and have an Easter-style candy hunt in their house and yard.

Is Pandemic Unity Between Ottawa And The Provinces Starting To Slip? (Analysis)

  Is Pandemic Unity Between Ottawa And The Provinces Starting To Slip? (Analysis) OTTAWA — Has the blame game started? Canada’s pandemic response has, until now, mostly been defined by a collegiality between different levels of government. The sparring that existed a year ago, when Ontario Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford’s unpopularity found him guest-starring in the federal Liberals’ election attack ads, has been replaced with beaming smiles and kind words from one leader to another. Just last week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Ontario premier were full of praise for one another.

“Our concept is based on the interaction of people all enjoying brunch … and at the moment that is impossible,” the restaurant announced Tuesday to its Instagram followers.

The 45th annual Ottawa Boat Show is the latest casualty of the pandemic. Organizers have cancelled this year’s show, which was to have been held Feb. 25-28 at the EY Centre. The show, which attracts hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors, will instead be held Feb. 24-27, 2022.

“This decision was not taken lightly, but the health and safety of our exhibitors, partners, visitors, and contractors is our top priority. Additional factors leading to the show’s postponement included the ability to provide a quality audience to the exhibitors and adequate time to produce a successful show,” organizers said in a press release. But boat lovers can still get their winter fix: A version of the show will be available online. More details at OttawaBoatShow.ca

The region’s medical officer of health, Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, reiterated his calls to cancel trick-or-treating, saying the region is “teetering” on the verge of becoming one of the province’s COVID-19 hot spots.

  COVID-19: Ontario reports 821 new cases, 78 new cases in Ottawa Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks about the compensation promised to Canadian dairy farmers after the dairy sector made concessions during negotiations on the new North American trade agreement.

“The problem is when you’re clustering a lot of people and you’re moving from home to home to home, you can’t control that. That’s the issue,” Roumeliotis told CTV Ottawa.

“Yes, you’re outside and if you do it carefully you can probably get away with it. But if you cluster a lot of kids running around, especially with elderly individuals handing out … that’s really the bottom line.

“I think we should be prudent, particularly in my area where we’re teetering and among the five top area in Ontario in terms of numbers, I think we should be prudent, just for this year.”
