Honestly not sure what the difference is between a stay at home order and a curfew. Right now they are sounding about the same #covid19
These new orders are in effect until at least Feb 11th
What is the difference between stay at home and a curfew Ford is asked. Premier says a curfew is you aren't leaving your house, says he has never been in favour of one. Says he does not believe police should chase you if you leave home after 8 PM. (I'm still confused)
Premier says big box stores have to be at 50% capacity or he will come down on them "like an 800 pound gorilla."
Says people can leave their homes to walk their dog.
Premier is asked about paid sick leave, he says Federal government has set one up which will cover them for 2 weeks (note many say it is not nearly enough)
