#After #Ottawa’s announcement on #Wednesday about the requirement to get a negative COVID-19 test before returning home, travelers are in doubt.

“#If I was on a beach in the #Caribbean or #Florida now, I would be looking for a clinic to have a screening test,” said the #Minister of #Intergovernmental #Affairs, #Dominic #Leblanc, #Wednesday.

#However, the details of this new measure imposed by the federal government are still not disclosed.

#Ottawa must also publish a press release during the day to clarify this new rule intended to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

#President of the #Treasury #Board #Peter #Bethlenfalvy will take over as head of the #Ontar #Department of #Finance. #He will therefore present the next provincial budget.

13h36 | #Hospitalizations: “likely” exceedance within three weeks in #Montreal

#For the first time, the #National #Institute of #Excellence in #Health and #Social #Services (INESSS) considers that the capacity of dedicated COVID beds is likely to be exceeded within the next three weeks in the #Montreal region.

#In its weekly report on the risks of hospitalization, INESSS indicates that the risk of exceeding the reception capacity is more than 50% in the metropolis.
