Science table lays out 6 ways to fight COVID-19

Members of the Ontario government sit in the legislature in spring 2020

The Ontario government has voted against a motion for paid sick days.

The Ontario government rejected efforts to support essential workers with paid sick leave Monday while admitting its now-reversed moves to close playgrounds and grant police sweeping enforcement powers had been a mistake. "What are we supposed to communicate to people?" "More people will get sick, and many will die if we don't put powerful public health measures in place right away", she said.

Ontario says 66,897 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine were administered in the province since Sunday's report for a total of 3,904,778 given out so far. "This includes restricting travel into Ontario, as well as strengthened public health measures that encourage Ontarians to stay at home as much as possible".

On Saturday the province also quickly rescinded new powers given to police officers, saying officers will no longer be able to stop any pedestrian or driver during the stay-at-home order to request their home address and their reason for being out of the house.

"Focusing on public health guidance that works".

"Lastly, we urge the Attorney General of Canada to refer Ontario Reg 294/21 and its enabling legislation to the Supreme Court of Canada, for a constitutional reference on provincial legislation, as has been done from time to time, pursuant to the Supreme Court Act".

Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca called for Ford to resign. "He should resign now before he makes things any worse".

There are no other new cases in managed isolation or in the community announced today. When asked what was the first thing he said to her, he replied: "Not a thing".

The Office of the Premier says he was notified Monday to "be prepared" for delays to the two shipments of AstraZeneca vaccine that were expected from the federal government later this month and next month.

"I'm open to having a rebate program where the employer, not the employee, can apply for government funding to backstop it", said Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner.

"ICUs are overflowing and COVID patients are being cared for in waiting rooms and crowded hospital hallways".

On Sunday Ontario reported another 4,250 new cases of COVID-19 and 18 people died in the last 24 hours.

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has retained Anil Kapoor, one of Canada's leading criminal and constitutional lawyers, to lead a legal team being assembled as we speak, to launch a legal challenge before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, most likely by way of injunction.

Before Ontario made a decision to lower the age group for AstraZeneca vaccines, doctors and pharmacists had expressed concern that not enough people were signing up to take the AstraZeneca shot, citing blood clot fears.
