COVID-19 Bulletin: July 14

Published on July 14, 2020

Here are today’s new developments: 

  • Doug Ford is embarking an election-style tour of the province this summer, a move Official Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath called disappointing and shameful given the ongoing crisis of COVID-19.

Here are some concerns the Official Opposition is working on, and solutions we’re working on:

  • Andrea Horwath called on Ford to address the problems in long-term care that can be fixed immediately, like staffing up ahead of a potential second wave of COVID-19.
  • The Official Opposition is putting forth an emergency action plan that would help kids return to class safely, five days a week, come fall. Official Opposition Education critic Marit Stiles tabled a motion that includes hiring additional educators and upgrades to help schools with infection control.
