TORONTO – Premier Doug Ford urges Ontarians to ‘curl up’ over next four weeks as province imposes home stay order to fight outbreak of COVID-19 that threatens to overwhelm hospitals.

Ford also says the province plans to start vaccinating people 18 and older living in COVID-19 hotspots, including teachers and essential workers.

The province says mobile teams will deliver vaccines to assembly places, residential buildings, faith centers and large employers in areas hard hit by the virus.

Regions will be selected based on patterns of transmission, serious illness and death from COVID-19.

Education workers in sensitive neighborhoods in Toronto and the Region of Peel will be eligible for vaccines starting next week, with plans to expand to other hard-hit areas when supply permits.

Staff who work directly with students with special needs across the province will also be eligible for COVID-19 injections starting next week.

The government announced the changes on Wednesday, saying clinics in high-risk areas would accept bookings from people aged 50 and older on Friday.
