COVID-19 Bulletin: April 2

Published on April 2, 2020

Here are today’s new developments:

  • Justin Trudeau is holding a call with Canada’s premiers at 5:30 this afternoon, to discuss coordinating efforts to fight COVID-19 – namely, the need to obtain crucial medical supplies to meet an expected surge of the virus.
  • After calls from the Official Opposition to support frontline workers with 24/7 free mental health resources, the Ontario government said it will expand online mental health services as Ontarians endure the COVID-19 crisis.
  • The government said a change could be on the way to shrink the list of essential businesses allowed to stay open. Andrea Horwath sent Doug Ford a letter on that yesterday. More news to come.
