Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced Toronto and Peel will move into lockdown effective 12:01 am on November 23rd to deal with COVID-19 (CCP Virus) pandemic.

Doug Ford said people have to follow the rules to get through this.

Malls and churches will be closed in Toronto and Peel, but remain open in other areas like York, Durham, and Halton. Travel restrictions have not been announced to prevent people from moving between zones under lockdown and those who are not under lockdown.

Impacted By Toronto Lockdown

Essential services in malls will remain open, but the non-essential stores will only be allowed to curbside pickup only to prevent large numbers of people congregating in the same area.

Retail won’t be closed but will be limited to curbside pickup.

Hair and nail salons will not be allowed to operate under the second wave lockdown.

Bulk buying was discouraged to prevent supply chain breakdown.

No guests are allowed into your home and violators could face some of the largest fines in the country for non-compliance.

Many specific questions remain about the effectiveness of these public health measures. In October an official with the WHO urges halt to lockdowns as a primary control method.
