Coronavirus outbreak: How long are COVID-19 restrictions expected to last in Canada?

Speaking to reporters outside Rideau Cottage in Ottawa, Ontario on Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked about recent media reports that the Government of Canada expects the social distancing and public shutdown guidelines to continue until July.

Trudeau refused to give a specific timeline on when the lockdowns and quarantines might be lifted but said Wednesday the measures could last for “weeks or even months.”

“We know [these measures] are going to be in place a number of more weeks, perhaps even months. But everything depends on how Canadians behave,” Trudeau told reporters Wednesday.

“The choices you make to stay at home, to self-isolate, not to go to six different grocery stores… these sorts of things are what will arrest the spread and the increase of this virus.”

As well Patty Hajdu, Canada’s Minister of Health, and Dr. Theresa Tam, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, were both asked on Wednesday to offer their professional assessments of what a “best case” and a “worst-case” scenario looks like for Canada as it continue to grapple with the outbreak of COVID-19.
