Ontario to get army assist

* Many Americans can now go out without mask: CDC

* Finland to end emergency as infection rates decline

* Portugal to lift more restrictions as pandemic ebbs

Toronto, April 27

The government of Ontario will be getting help from Canada’s military in dealing with a surge of Covid infections, while several other Canadian provinces are tightening health restrictions in hope of avoiding a similar situation.

Ontario’s solicitor general says resources are coming from the Canadian armed forces and the Canadian Red Cross. Ontario has been struggling with a new wave of the pandemic that has seen the number of patients in intensive care surge.

Several other provinces imposed new restrictions, including Nova Scotia, which closed Halifax-area schools to in-person learning for two weeks after the province witnessed a single-day record for new cases for the second day in a row. — AP
