Libraries, recreation centres, swimming pools, childcare centres, March break camps being closed in Toronto

BY , Mar 13, 2020 10:17 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Toronto's medical officer of health says all licensed childcare centres will be closed until April 5 to stop the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Dr. Eileen de Villa is also recommending that anyone who has travelled recently outside of Canada to self-isolate for two weeks.

The city will also shut down many public buildings including libraries, recreation centres and swimming pools as well as cancel March break camps.

Officials, however, are not asking people to avoid mass public transit.

Toronto Mayor John Tory, who recently returned from a trade mission to London, says he has no symptoms but will go into self-isolation for the next 12 days.
