With a record number of COVID-19 patients in Ontario's intensive care units and its highest-ever rate of new cases in schools, multiple sources say Premier Doug Ford will on Thursday announce plans to move the whole province into what the government describes as "shutdown" measures.
The provincial government's COVID-19 scientific advisers are scheduled to release new modelling Thursday morning showing the expected impact of the pandemic's third wave over the next few weeks.

Details the shutdown or stay-at-home orders put in place previously are posted on the province's website.
