After Saskatchewan, Ontario opening plan is here.

 

“Together, Ontario will emerge from this crisis – with a clear path to economic recovery that keeps people safe and healthy.”

 

PHASE ONE: PROTECT AND SUPPORT

The first of the three phases is already underway. This phase focuses on protecting the health and well-being of individuals and families, as well as supporting frontline health-care workers. It also focuses on emergency orders put in place that shutdown non-essential workplaces, outdoor amenities at parks, recreational areas, and public places, as well as put restrictions on social gatherings.

Ontario’s Action Plan: Responding to COVID-19 is part of this phase. The $17-billion plan was released on March 25.

PHASE TWO: RESTART

This phase is broken down into three stages that provide a “careful approach” to loosening emergency measures and therefore reopening Ontario’s economy, the framework states.

During this phase, the government says public health and workplace safety “will remain the top priority,” while balancing the needs of people and businesses.

Each of the following three stages will be monitored by health officials for two to four weeks.

Stage one: Open select workplaces, allow some small gatherings

  •  Businesses that can “immediately meet or modify operations” to meet public health guidance, for example, those that can conduct curbside pickup or delivery
  •  Opening some outdoor spaces, such as parks, and allowing for “a greater number of individuals” to attend some events, such as funerals
  •  Hospitals begin to offer some non-urgent surgeries and other health-care services

Stage two: Open more workplaces and outdoor spaces, allow some larger gatherings

  •  May include some service industries and additional office and retail workplaces

Stage three: Further relax restrictions on public gathers, opening all workplaces

  •  Large public gatherings, such as concerts and sporting events will continue to be restricted for “the foreseeable future”

After each two-to-four-week period, health officials may advise to “reapply or tighten certain public health measures,” “maintain status quo,” or “progress to the next stage.”

“This ongoing gradual assessment of public health measures will continue until the post-pandemic period when a vaccine or treatment for COVID-19 is available.”

PHASE THREE: RECOVER

This phase includes Ontario transitioning to its “new normal” and will focus on creating jobs across the province while ensuring that workplaces are following strict health and safety guidelines.

“Remote work arrangement should continue where feasible,” the province states.

Kiera Norris had travelled to Shijiazhuang, China, and had been unable to return home since then.

When she travelled to January to China, she didn’t expect that she would not be able to meet her husband who was in Canada for another nine months. It came as a complete surprise.


Every three weeks, she packed her bags and went to the airport, hoping that even though the flights had come to a grinding halt, she would still perhaps be able to board a flight and head back home. But time and again, she had to face this disappointment of not being able to go back home. She finally reunited with her husband after nine long months. “It was really hard”, she said.


The couple has been married for about ten years now. The hardest part for them was to do things alone, as they were so habitual of each other that they’d do everything together. Norris said,” You know those couples that enjoy their time apart? We are not like that.” This just proves the amount of love that the couple has between them.


The couple has a business in China which is why they have a reason to travel there. Not only that, Norris’s family lives in China too. They usually travel together, however, this year, she planned to visit her family two weeks before her husband, and got stranded there because of the pandemic. Norris was able to schedule a flight in on March 19th, but the rescheduled it. They kept doing it, only to her disappointment, and the couple was well aware of the fact that this won’t end soon.


Both of them are nature lovers and spending time away from each other was very difficult for them. Kevin Norris said they would Facetime and Skype every day without a delay because they “like to keep that connection strong.”


In total, her plea to book a flight was rejected nine times. Finally, after nine months, she was able to board the plane that would get her back home to her husband.

The Governor Of A Tiny American Town Which Is Trapped By BC Sends A Letter To Trudeau For Help

The closure of the borders is adversely affecting Canada and America. Point Roberts, Washington is trapped by B.C which is why it isn’t exactly connected to the USA by land. Hence the governor of the state sent a message to Trudeau for help. Robert points are located at the end of the BC peninsula and are not connected to Washington in any particular way but it is a part of the USA since it is below the 49th parallel. Since the border has been shut between the two countries due to corona, almost 1300 people are stuck who can’t leave the town.

The governor Jay Inslee sent a letter for help for this issue. He goes on stating that because of the separation from the state and the U.S., services are only taking place in Point Roberts. Hence the citizens usually pass through into Canada or through to Washington to get what they require. He goes on to believe that Trudeau will perhaps help in easing the movement through B.C. Something that could possibly help could be a transit pass which lets USA citizens pass through Canada to go to Alaska. This could possibly happen by displaying the pass at the Peace Arch Border Crossing.


Over the years, we have creatively worked together to solve problems and realize so many opportunities,” Inslee states this in his letter.
