And while there’s no straight answer to this looming question just yet, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says we may have to practice social distancing and implement closures for weeks or even months.
Speaking at a press conference outside Rideau Cottage in Ottawa this morning, the PM warned of the potential for these measures to remain in place for quite some time.
“We are going to continue to follow the best recommendations from experts. We’ve heard anything from weeks to months,” he said.
“We know this is a difficult and extraordinary time in which Canadians are taking difficult and extraordinary measures. We’ll continue to do that until Canadians are safe.”
