TORONTO — Today is the deadline for written submissions from the public to the commission examining the devastating impact of COVID-19 on long-term care homes.
Ontario's Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission says anything sent by the public after today may not be considered for its final report.
That report is due April 30 and the commission still has a few more video hearings.
The commission had requested an extension to investigate the pandemic's second wave further and to get crucial information the province.
Minister of Long-Term Care Merrilee Fullerton denied the request.
