Ontario is “getting close” to reopening the economy according to Premier Doug Ford

Written by: Angelo Cruz

During his daily address at Queen’s Park on April 30, Ford noted that the COVID-19 curve in the province is flattening, and that “we are in the path to reopening the economy”.

A sector-specific guideline list was released to the public on the Government of Ontario’s website, and the guidelines listed are for the protection of workers, customers, and the general public from the virus.

According to the government, the safety guidelines will provide direction for various industries that will be reopening. These industries include retail, tourism, food service, and more.

Along with these guidelines, the provincial government has also hired 58 inspectors that will join the current labour inspectors to help enforce these guidelines once the businesses have reopened to the public.

The provincial government has also confirmed that these new inspectors will be tasked with enforcing the emergency measures needed during the pandemic, such as ensuring physical distancing and keeping the non-essential businesses closed until further notice.

“We will open things in phases as it becomes safe to do so,” said Ford when discussing how reopening the economy will go.

“All of these guidelines, taken together with our framework, provide a strong foundation to help get the province working again”.

These new guidelines, along with the three-phase reopening plan Ford introduced on April 27 have not provided a definitive timeframe however, as the plan will progress as the pandemic numbers lower.

Ford remains optimistic about the matter, as he says “Ontario will come out of this stronger than before”.

“This pandemic has turned our lives upside-down. It has put our will and resolve to the test but we are winning this fight and we will win this fight”.

More information on the guidelines for businesses reopening will be available on Ontario’s official website.
