Majority of Ontarians back COVID-19 restrictions, poll shows
There is overwhelming public support for pandemic restrictions to remain in place for the rest of April, a new poll suggests.
The Campaign Research survey — commissioned by the Toronto Star before Premier Doug Ford announced a province-wide lockdown Thursday — found significant backing for public health measures.
“Two-thirds of the Ontario voting public support current restrictions or even more restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19,” Campaign Research principal Nick Kouvalis said.
A poll has found that 35 per cent of Ontarians feel the province has done a “good job” on the pandemic but that restrictions should remain until April 30, while 32 per cent think even more lockdown measures are required. - Richard Lautens / /Toronto Star
