Ontario responds to Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission report | LIVE

Ontario’s Minister of Long-Term Care, Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, is expected to hold a press conference Monday in response to the release of the final report of the province’s Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission.

Despite numerous past reviews, commissions and inquiries recommending improvements, the sector was completely unprepared for the pandemic, the Commission said in a 322-page report delivered to the provincial government Friday night.

The final report as well as a damning new auditor general’s report also underscored a months-long Global News investigation that found the Ontario government failed to provide homes with adequate infection prevention and control (IPAC) measures, didn’t hire staff fast enough and failed to take action on de-crowding older homes.
