Premier Doug Ford says that younger Ontarians who aren’t following all COVID-19 health measures are putting themselves and their families at risk.
His warning comes as the province records its highest single-day increase in new COVID-19 cases since late June.
On Tuesday, the provincial government reported 203 new cases of the coronavirus, with 57 per cent of those cases in people who are under the age of 39.
Although Ford says many young people are following the rules, he says others must do better.
Meantime, experts are warning of a ‘false sense of security’ some people may get after testing negative for the virus.
They say current testing methods have a fairly large margin of error and also can’t detect the virus during its incubation period.
According to the experts, that means many people will get false negatives.
Those experts are warning that a negative result doesn’t mean you’re allowed to socialize in large groups.
