“I want to speak directly to the parents,” the prime minister said.

“I know you are concerned about your children’s schools and what to expect after the new year. I can tell you this: no decision has been made yet on what it looks like. We are simply not in a position to say.

“The situation is evolving too fast to be able to know where we will be in early January.”

Ford said they are working “every day” to do whatever it takes to protect staff and students.

The government announced a series of new restrictions on Friday as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the province and amid uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant.

Capacity limits, restrictions on food and beverage service, and meeting size limits are among the measures that were announced.
