COVID-19 Update for April 29, 2020 – 1:45pm

April 29, 2020

Today, Premier Doug Ford announced that the province is further expanding the list of essential workers eligible to receive free emergency child care during the COVID-19 outbreak. According to the announcement, free child care is being expanded to include people who work in the food supply chain, retirement homes, grocery stores and pharmacies, and certain federal employees, including the military.

Since emergency child care was introduced on March 22, almost 100 child care centres have reopened along with 40 Licensed Home Child Care Agencies in communities across the province.

Meanwhile, the Premier said he was encouraged after Ontario reported its lowest single-day increase in new COVID-19 cases in more than three weeks – painting a more promising picture for the province.
