The wave-two rollback continues on Monday in the GTA.

It means you won’t be able to dine inside local restaurants, casinos, indoor gyms, and cinemas will also be closed.

The new restrictions will last at least twenty 28 days.


Premier Doug Ford hinted on Friday that Halton could be the next public health zone to step back.
