You can watch Justin Trudeau’s press conference live in the video player above.
Trudeau will be speaking from the front steps of Rideau Cottage, the same venue where he held daily press conferences in the early days of the pandemic.
His comments will come just hours after the Chief Public Health Officer warned that Canada is “not on a good trajectory” as she unveiled the latest figures in the virus’ spread Friday morning.
“For individual Canadians this means, whenever possible, reducing the number of people we come into contact with each day, while maintaining hand hygiene, physical distancing, and face-mask wearing precautions,” she said.
“For public health authorities, it means implementing time-limited restrictions and control measures to further reduce the number of people coming into contact each day across the population.”
Trudeau’s comments will be followed by questions from reporters.
