Canadian officials provide update on latest COVID-19 numbers, vaccine roll-out | LIVE

CA, 15 Jul 2021
Ministers and Government of Canada health officials will hold a news conference to provide an update on COVID-19 and the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines on Thursday.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, slightly different physical distancing guidelines have been enforced across the world.

At the federal level in Canada, the public health recommendation is to keep a distance of at least two metres (6.6 feet) from others. That advisement has been largely followed by the provinces.

But starting this week, Quebec’s government relaxed their rules, reducing the required distance between two people from different households to one metre — even indoors.

However, some experts in Canada say changing physical distancing guidelines comes with an increased risk amid the spread of more transmissible variants of COVID-19 and with more than 50 per cent of the population still not fully vaccinated.
