Most Ontarians support another lockdown if COVID-19 cases spike, poll finds
Three-quarters of Ontarians would support a return to “stay-at-home” measures if COVID-19 cases skyrocket as they did last spring, a new poll suggests.
The Campaign Research survey for the Star found 74 per cent back a lockdown should coronavirus infections continue to increase toward levels last seen in April, while 15 per cent were opposed and 12 per cent were unsure.
