Saskatchewan and Ontario plan to start opening the cities back up soon

411 information online is happy to share with you the possible end of the Covid-19 lockdown according to news reports. 

In a news report Published Monday, April 13, 2020 by CTV news, reporter Josh Lynn reports 

SASKATOON -- It was a little over a month ago the Juno Awards, set to take place in Saskatoon,  were cancelled  over fears that the event could contribute to the spread of COVID-19. 

The news came the same day as the province's first COVID-19 case was announced,  a Saskatoon man in his 60s.

A sweeping series of public health restrictions and recommendations  soon followed, which shuttered everything from city playgrounds to schools and businesses.

Monday, as health officials reported just  two new cases  of the virus among the province's 118 active cases, Premier Scott Moe said it's time to begin thinking — cautiously — about how life here may eventually get back to some semblance of normal.

"We can start to think about what the process of reopening Saskatchewan will look like," Moe said.

Moe said his government could have a "Reopen Saskatchewan" plan ready to present as early as next week while at the same time urging continued vigilance.

"We are only one outbreak away from interrupting those (positive) numbers," he said.

Nearly 60% of the people who contracted COVID-19 have recovered. None of this is reason for complacency, but it is a reason for cautious optimism.

If this continues, we will introduce our plan to gradually and methodically reopen SK's economy. #COVID19SK

Doug Ford might now be feeling some pressure as a result of the Saskatchewans decision and has made he own plan now to reopen Ontario. 411 information online now shares with you the following. Published Friday, April 24, 2020 by CP24 written by Codi Wilson. We share the following. 

The province plans to release its framework for reopening Ontario early next week, Premier Doug Ford announced Friday.

Ford, who spoke to reporters at Queen’s Park during his daily COVID-19 update this afternoon, said the document will outline the “gradual and measured approach” the province will take to restart the economy.

“Let me be clear, the health and safety of Ontario will always come first,” Ford said. 

The premier has given very few hints as to the timeline for reopening and has not said what specific sectors will be given the go-ahead first.

When asked if the province is looking at taking a more regional approach to reopening Ontario, both Ford and Finance Minister Rod Phillips expressed concern about that method.

“We are dealing with almost two different worlds. You have the urban and you have the rural areas but we are all connected,” Ford said Friday.

“The problem with that… is we just can’t risk someone in Toronto going up north.”

Phillips said the movement of people is a major consideration when looking at whether to open up individual regions ahead of others.

“Obviously we are experiencing in the suburban and urban areas different realities of community transmission than they are in some of the more rural areas,” he said.

He noted that if restrictions were lifted in certain regions, people from other areas may actually be “incented” to go to the regions no longer under lockdowns, leading to further transmission of the virus in the community.  You can read that full article and report here
