Global News published this video item, entitled “Ontario health officials give COVID-19 update after Thanksgiving weekend | FULL” – below is their description.

Ontario’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Kieran Moore delivered an update on Thursday regarding the province’s COVID-19 situation following the Thanksgiving long weekend.

Last Friday, the province announced via a press release that capacity limits were being fully lifted on some venues, such as cinemas, sporting venues and meeting spaces where proof of vaccination was required. The change allowed these venues to open at 100 per cent capacity as of this past Saturday, though other public health measures like masking were still required.

Sources told Global News on Thursday that the government is expected to announce plans to exit Step 3 of the COVID-19 reopening plan next week. The first phase will determine when capacity limits can be lifted for the remaining venues, like restaurants and gyms, that are already under a proof-of-vaccination policy.

Ontario reported 417 COVID-19 cases on Thursday, bringing the total number of cases in the province to 593,437. The seven-average has now reached 476, which is down from the week prior when it was 565. A month ago, the seven-day average was around 700.

  • In This Story: Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations were scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

    The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

    Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
