Justin Trudeau has been giving daily news conferences outside his residence and suggested Saturday he would continue to work from home to set an example for Canadians who are being asked to stay at home.
“These are challenging times. I know it’s not easy to be alone – we are all social beings, me included! But just because we’re increasing the physical distance between us doesn’t mean we have to do the same emotionally,” Grégoire Trudeau said Saturday. “From social media to a simple phone call, there are so many ways for us to stay connected while we’re apart and actually deepen our relationships.”
Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, said Saturday it is prohibiting gatherings of five people or more.
The order does not apply to households with five or more people, and funerals will be permitted with up to 10 people at one time.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford said if the virus is to be stopped, extraordinary measures are needed to ensure physical distancing. The province has already closed all nonessential services.
Quebec announced police checkpoints in eight regions outside the province’s major cities where the population is deemed more at risk.
Quebec Deputy Premier Genevieve Guilbault said that only essential travel will be allowed in those areas and that provincial police have also set up checkpoints near the Canada-U.S. border to intercept snowbirds coming back to Quebec to ensure they understand there is a 14-day quarantine.
