April 12 (Reuters) - The Canadian province of Ontario is
closing schools for in-person learning due to rising
variant-driven COVID-19 cases, Premier Doug Ford said on Monday
without mentioning when the remote learning would end.
Canada's most populous province shuttered most businesses to
in-store shopping and issued a four-week stay-at-home order last
week, in addition to closing restaurants for both indoor and
outdoor dining as ICU occupancy increased dramatically and
hospitals began cancelling elective surgeries for the second
time since the pandemic began.
