    In Ontario, the last three COVID-19 hotspots under strict stay-at-home orders will see restrictions eased on Monday.

    New Brunswick is also easing restrictions, and health officials there say anyone who wants a shot will be able to get one before the end of June.

    Meanwhile, Alberta has moved into Step 2 of its reopening plan as cases and hospitalizations decline. The Olymel meat processing plant reopened this week after an outbreak that resulted in the deaths of three of its workers.

    Employees are anxious about going back to work, and as Heather Yourex-West reports, there is a push to make vaccinating food processing workers a priority.
