Thanks to your ongoing sacrifice and adherence to public health measures, Toronto continues to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the city.
On Thursday, the City of Toronto, through the Medical Officer of Health released data that confirmed what many people have been saying for months, that COVID-19 has been disproportionately impacting poor and racialized people.
Yesterday, Premier Doug Ford announced that the City of Toronto would be allowed to move into Stage 3 of the Provincial Reopening framework on Friday.
Today, the City of Toronto recorded only 6 new infections in our city. This follows yesterday where we reported only 5 new cases. These are our lowest numbers of new infections that we have reported in quite some time.
This week, the BC Center for Disease control released updated guidelines on COVID-19 and sex. This caused significant discussion online about their recommended use of barriers, like walls and glory holes, that allow for sexual activity but prevent close face-to-face contact. While some made jokes about the advice, supporting safer sexual health during this pandemic is important, and an issue that hasn’t received much attention.
