What Ontario residents have been fearing was indeed confirmed this afternoon: The province is pulling the emergency brake and going into a full shutdown for four weeks, starting this weekend.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise at an alarming rate, a provincewide shutdown is in effect as of Saturday, April 3, at 12:01 a.m. […] Starting April 3, the COVID-19covid 19 Response Framework (colour-coded zones) is paused.

Once again this year, just as we did last year, in keeping with staying at home but still celebrating, we’re having cinnamon buns with boiled eggs (and bacon, of course there will be bacon) for breakfast and roasting a small chicken for dinner. Just the two of us. …and the furry black fiend. Even though he is attempting to sneak by us to maim our avocado plant that has just sprouted its first leaves.
This afternoon, we’ll go for a bike ride. Then, tomorrow, to celebrate Easter Monday, we’ll go on another bike ride, taking sandwiches to a park for a physically distanced picnic with my sister.
Keep Washing Your Hands! Stay Well!
And here’s to normal circumstances returning
