This means that private residences in Durham now face similar rules as public-facing businesses. It also means the government is now setting rules for private social interactions.
Them Conservatives sure like to trample your freedoms, eh?

COVID in children: Infections skyrocket 30X, now account for 30% of cases
COVID-19 cases in children have risen 30-fold since late June and are now at record highs, with nearly 500,000 new child cases reported in the past two weeks, according to the latest data released by the American Academy of Pediatrics on Monday. Pediatric cases have "increased exponentially," the AAP said in a statement.

“It is notable that the province currently permits indoor social gatherings in private residences but does not mandate the collection of guests’ personal information,” O’Connor adds. “This is another instance of a local public health unit imposing orders above and beyond the province’s COVID-related restrictions.”

And who regulates those local health units?

Each provincially appointed Chief Medical Officer of Health.

In 2021 in Ontario, the Progressive Conservatives appointed Dr. Kieran Moore.

About 90 per cent of the adult population has received a full course of vaccination, either two doses or one.

Adult population of Ireland: 3,699,969
  • Vaccinated (90%): 3,329,972
  • Unvaccinated (10%): 369,997
Hospital patients:

168 (54%) patients were vaccinated.
143 (44%) patients were unvaccinated.

Vaccinated adults requiring hospitalization: 0.005% or 1 in 200

Unvaccinated adults requiring hospitalization: 0.04% or 1 in 25

THIS MEANS THAT UNVACCINATED PEOPLE WERE 8X MORE LIKELY TO REQUIRE HOSPITALIZATION.
