Most major Canadian cities have now been designated “green zones” on a Harvard scale for safely reopening schools, which means they pose a very low risk of coming in contact with COVID – 19. Communities with fewer than one daily new case per 100,000 people are considered green, which indicates that the virus is close to containment.
Canada has extended international travel restrictions and mandatory quarantine until September 30th to limit the introduction and spread of COVID-19 into the country.
