Christine Elliott, Ontario's Minister of Health, made the announcement during a press conference on Tuesday.

The Ontario government has announced it will pause any further re-openings in the province for four weeks as COVID-19 cases continue to rise. Etches said. "We can avoid having to send so many children home if people really stick to those assigned seats and we have a process to make sure that's happening".

She said that the decision will mean that the province won't consider increasing the number of people allowed to gather indoors (50) or outdoors (100) for the time being, nor will it expand social circles any further.

Ottawa's top doctor says 190 students and fewer than 10 teachers are self-isolating out of an abundance of caution after COVID-19 cases were found in individuals linked to five schools in Ottawa.

The province recorded 375 new COVID-19 cases over the previous two-day period.

The firms, including Pfizer and Merck, said they would only apply for regulatory approval after vaccines went through three phases of clinical study.

Of the new patients reported over the last two days, the majority are between the ages of 20 and 39.

"We aren't there yet", Ford said. "Come on guys, we have gone through everything together as a team and you can't let your guard down now".

More than half of the new cases on Tuesday were reported in the Greater Toronto Area.

"This is a concern and a reminder that we all need to maintain public health measures to keep COVID-19 on the slow-burn path that we need", Dr. Theresa Tam said in a statement released early Tuesday.

Ottawa logged an additional 37 infections.
