Deputy chief public health officer Dr. Howard Njoo says Canada is at a crisis point in the COVID-19 pandemic.

He's cancelled his Thanksgiving plans with his son and says even close family members should stay apart if they don't live together.

New restrictions go into effect tomorrow in Toronto, neighbouring Peel Region and Ottawa as COVID-19 infections continue to soar in Ontario.

For at least 28 days there will be no indoor dining at restaurants and bars.

The province is also shutting down gyms, movie theatres and casinos and asking people in those areas to leave their homes only for essential purposes.

Ontario reported a record 939 new cases today.

Quebec reported another 1,102 new cases.
