Ontario could soon be using the emergency alert system to tell residents to stay home. Normally used for Amber Alerts or to warn of dangerous situations, the system sends text message alerts to virtually every mobile phone, TV and radio in the province. New Zealand and Washington, D.C. are among the jurisdictions that have used the communication method during the coronavirus crisis.
