I am very angry right now about restrictions both in the real world and in the virtual. Let's start with the real world, on account of (a) it's real and (b) it affects more than just me. Understatement, that.
Our esteemed (?) Premier, Doug Ford, has examined the most recent Covid figures for our province and he didn't like what he saw. For good reason: the latest figures I have seen show that 433 of Ontario's 500 ICU beds are currently full of COVID-19 patients. That's cutting it a little tight when you understand that ICU beds are used for more than just COVID patients.
Accordingly, Ford has announced that as of 12:01 a.m. tomorrow, the entire province is back in gray, or "lockdown". The quotes are very much intentional, because this isn't a lockdown at all.
Not even close.
- unless you work in food service, your business remains open, with capacity limits;
- it appears to be up to individual school boards whether to conduct classes on site or online, and at least a few are choosing in-person education;
- Retail establishments will remain open.
