TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford says that increased data coming from a new COVID-19 testing strategy unveiled today has prompted him to consider a regional approach to reopening. Ford has been asked on multiple occasions about the idea and has said it wasn’t on the table, but now he says he’s asking health officials to show him what a regional approach would look like. Two-thirds of the province’s cases are in the Greater Toronto Area.
