Ontario announces ‘cautious’ restart of allowing visitors into long-term care, retirement homes

The Ontario government announced a “cautious” restart plan to allow visitors back into the province’s long-term care homes beginning June 18. Premier Doug Ford made the announcement alongside ministers Christine Elliott, Merrilee Fullerton and Todd Smith at his daily press briefing at Queen’s Park on Thursday. Fullerton said one visitor will be allowed per resident for one outdoor visit per week at long-term care homes. The visitor must have tested negative for coronavirus in the past two weeks.
