Toronto is springing back to life Throughout the city Wednesday morning, restaurants, nail salons and barbershops unlocked their doors to the public for the first time since Ontario shut down in mid-March.
Although we are unable to enjoy the normal-outdoor Canada Day events, we will be able to enjoy Canada Day events at home. The City of Toronto has planned a national virtual Canada Day. The multiple events such as music, dance and comedy begin as livestreams from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on YouTube. Also, the CN Tower will salute Canada Day with a 15-minute light show beginning at 10 p.m. on YouTube.
No disaster can stop the dreams of UIS students. Many of our students have and are receiving admission letters from prestigious universities in Canada and abroad. Letter came from UofT, McMaster, Waterloo, or UCL, Sydney University, UNSW etc.
Congratulations to their success and the best of luck in the future.
Ontario’s regional health units are reporting their lowest single-day jump in new COVID-19 cases in 80 days and the fewest new fatal cases in a day since March 29, according to the Star’s latest count.
As of 5 p.m. Sunday, the health units had reported a total of 34,020 confirmed and probable cases, including 2,571 deaths, up a total of just 179 new cases since Saturday evening — the first day with fewer than 200 since March 26, back in the early days of rapid case growth before the COVID-19 epidemic first peaked in the province.
The rate of new infections has fallen sharply this week. Since last Sunday, Ontario has seen an average of 246 cases reported each day, the lowest for any seven-day period since March.
Current and New students for UIS should prepare the masks!
The TTC is set to make it mandatory for riders to wear a face mask while using the transit system.
