indeed they are. Busy Highway 7 today with many cars from the GTA. Supermarket had long lineups outside,. I can't say that I would cancel my weekend plans at such short notice either.

Saskatchewan recorded 34 new cases yesterday, but 13 of those are from one gospel meeting in Prince Albert. The numbers are going up, regardless.

Yep, although Taiwan has 70% the population of Canada crammed into a tiny island close to mainland China, and look at how well they did.

Doesn't Taiwan have a more mask wearing culture and did so from the onset?

I think that is wear many western countries messed up, not encouraging/requiring masks from the onset and social distancing as they do seem to work.

Understand from my niece that Montreal has put its citizens under house arrest to combat the virus. She was lucky and escaped to Ontario just before the mandate.

I haven't read anything about Montreal placing all citizens under house arrest - only those who have tested positive or refused to isolate / limit the number of people in the house etc., although they are at Level 4 - which is worrying.
I strongly suspect there will be rules put in place for anyone entering Ontario, that they must quarantine - similar to Nova Scotia - (I wish there already was - that's how this thing is spreading) - below is from Sept 30th, it may have been updated since
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montr...d-19-1.5745046The new restrictions take effect 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday and are set to last for 28 days, until Oct. 28, in the red zones. The restrictions are:
  • A ban on home gatherings, with some exceptions, such as a single caregiver, babysitter, tradesperson or technician, allowed per visit.
  • All bars and casinos are closed. Restaurants can offer only takeout.
  • Museums, cinemas and theatres are closed.
  • Being less than two metres apart will be prohibited. Masks will be mandatory during demonstrations.
  • Houses of worship and venues for events, such as funerals and weddings, will have a 25-person limit.
  • Hair salons, hotels and other such businesses will stay open.
  • Schools will remain open.

Cristiano Ronaldo tests positive for COVID-19.

I wonder if he caught it during this celebration on Friday?

I wrote earlier about how Campbellton, NB was put back into Orange (from Yellow) and how when Moncton had a (care home) 'outbreak, people were complaining that Moncton should have gone Orange too, even though it wasn't really comparable.

...outbreak in a special care home in Moncton. 17 cases - residents, staff or close contacts and there have been bitter people complaining that Moncton area had not been put back to Orange. They're seemingly unable to differentiate between one outbreak and four.

As it happens, the government has just announced that Moncton area will go back to Orange for the time being. I think this is a sop to those in the northern part of the province where the government won not a single seat in the recent election and where the Premier recently got into trouble for saying a lampshade could get elected up there.
In the days since there have been additional numbers of what can be described as the same community spread in Campbellton - they now have 4 different schools affected as well - and what could be described as no community spread in Moncton where there is only one travel related case and everything else is associated with the care home.

Sop or not it appears that people are now being discouraged from travelling here, from within the province or outside. That should cut down the numbers of people bringing covid into the province.

The lack of brain activity in some CBC comments is something to behold.
Why can I buy cannabis but my son can't play sports. Why can I buy beer but not get a haircut. Why can strip bars open.
People appear to be making moral judgements rather than considering relevant stuff like prolonged, close contact, heavy breathing (in sports not watching a stripper ) as opposed to brief contact, from distances or behind barriers.

Can't speak for your neck of the woods, but in the UK business owners are getting really fed up, and quite rightly so.

"They tell you that you can go to a pub and have a pie in front of you but you can't go to a pub and have a pint in front of you.

"It's all a big joke and that's why people aren't adhering to it because they don't believe what the government are telling them because it makes no sense."

Unless they're in an area with special measures, isn't the only pub restriction closing earlier at 10.00pm?

I think the article was referring to these new confusing rules.

The Liverpool City Region will be placed under ''very high'' coronavirus alert from Wednesday 14 October.

This means pubs and bars there cannot open unless they ''operate as if they were a restaurant'' and serve ''substantial'' meals. Alcohol can only be served as part of those meals.

549 cases announced in BC today, but keep in mind this isn't for a single day, but over a 4 day period as they don't update on weekends or holidays.

Positivity rate remains very low at 1.39 per cent. Over 10,000 testing being done daily.
