Ontario Shutting All Public Schools

The shutdown will last until April 5th.

In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, Ontario is shutting down all public schools in response to Coronavirus.

Schools are currently on March break, and the Ontario government is adding two weeks, meaning schools will be shut down until April 5th.

“Based on latest available advice from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams, and the experts at the #COVID19 Command Table, our government has directed all publicly funded schools in Ontario to close for 2 weeks following March break.”

More and more people are calling for total school and event shutdowns across Canada.

Ontario’s move comes after Quebec banned all indoor events larger than 250 people.

It is now likely that other provinces will follow, shutting down schools across the nation – a necessary step to fight the spreading virus.
