Premier Ford stresses cautious action as Ontario remains in sixth wave of COVID-19

DAN CEARNS, The Standard

NORTH DURHAM/KAWARTHA: The Premier of Ontario stresses caution as the province continues to navigate the sixth wave of COVID-19 infections.

“I truly believe everybody should continue to be cautious; move forward cautiously. We’ve built up the hospital capacity. We’re listening to [Chief Medical Officer of Health] Dr. Moore’s recommendations,” Premier Ford stated, at a press conference, on Thursday, April 14th.

Specifically, Premier Ford had some masking advice for residents.

“When you’re in a crowded room, put your mask on,” he said. “Stay cautious. If you’re having 15 people over, put your mask on. It doesn’t hurt. We’ve been through this for two years now. Common sense prevails.”

The Premier stressed the importance of the approach to taking care of the most vulnerable residents first.

“That’s why we’re giving out fourth doses [of COVID-19 vaccines], that’s why we have the antiviral pills for the most vulnerable, and the capacity [in] hospitals. Hospitals are strong right now.”

Premier Ford noted he’s been hearing some “positive information” regarding the province-wide wastewater surveillance testing results.

“It’s peaked, and it’s slowly going down,” he said.
