Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered an urgent plea to Canadians today warning that if social contacts are not reduced, and reduced now, the transmission of COVID-19 could reach overwhelming levels.
“We all want to have a normal Christmas while, quite frankly, a normal Christmas is right out of the question,” said Trudeau outside his Rideau Cottage residence in Ottawa Friday.
Just what the spikes in COVID-19 cases will mean for families during the holiday season is not yet set in stone, said Trudeau, and with still more than four weeks until Christmas, what kind of limits will remain in place or be extended by late December remains an open – and regional – question.
