Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says in many parts of Canada the COVID-19 curve has flattened.

He says that's the bottom line of new federal modelling data being released today.

But he says while the measures taken so far to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus are working, Canadians can't let up.

He says a coming national framework for easing up on some of those measures is based on ensuring COVID-19 can be contained.

Trudeau says six million surgical masks will be shipped to the provinces and territories this week.

He says 100,000 face shields are also on the way soon.

Trudeau says ensuring workers have the right protective equipment is essential to helping businesses reopen.
