Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the cabinet will meet this afternoon to make adjustments to the wage subsidy program – To start business will only have to show a 15 percent decline in revenue, instead of 30 – and we can expect changes to the student summer jobs program – including subsidies of up to 100 percent to hire students – and some good news - a shipment of 500 thousands masks from 3M came in overnight!

Triage nurses at the Jewish General Hospital will soon be able to use a first of its kind, medical-grade smartphone app to test heart rate, respiratory rate and oxygen levels of emergency room patients, without having to touch them. They’ll eventually roll it out to other hospitals and even patients at home.

In Quebec, we have 9340 case of COVID-19, 150 people have died and 720 have recovered - Premier Francois Legault will update those numbers at 1PM.
