Ontarians will get emergency alerts sent to their cellphones, radios and TVs at 2 p.m. today, warning recent travellers to stay at home.
The alert will tell travellers returning to Ontario that they are required by law to self-isolate for 14 day, as they are at high risk of spreading COVID-19.
It will tell them, “DO NOT visit stores, family or friends.”
The message will also say that everyone should stay home to help stop the spread of the virus.
Premier Doug Ford says, “This is the first, but most likely not the last time, we use this powerful tool."
