Coronavirus: Canadian provinces introduce tighter restrictions as cases climb

From Ontario to Alberta and British Columbia, provincial governments across Canada are introducing new restrictions as provinces continue to grapple with a second wave of COVID-19.

In Alberta, indoor group fitness classes and team sports will be prohibited for two weeks from Nov. 13 to Nov. 27 in the Calgary and Edmonton areas, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge and Red Deer. Restaurants and pubs in those same areas, as well as areas on “enhanced status” are being made to stop liquor sales by 10 p.m. and close by 11 p.m. Heather Yourex-West reports on the new tightened restricts.

In Ontario, health officials unveiled the latest COVID-19 modelling numbers on Thursday, which show the province could hit 2,500 cases per day at a three per cent growth rate or 6,500 per day at a five per cent growth rate by mid-December. Eric Sorensen has the details.

Dawna Friesen explains why Toronto Mayor John Tory is telling people in that city to “stay home” as COVID-19 cases continue to climb, and has the latest details on B.C.’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
