Ontario’s top doctor said he will make more recommendations on masking ahead of a “quite complex and difficult winter” battling COVID-19.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore told CP24 on Thursday COVID-19 hospitilizations in the province have been increasing in the past several weeks.

“We will be making more recommendations of wearing masks to cut down the risk of all these viruses that are transmitted through personal contact,” Moore said. “(It) could be a quite complex and difficult winter.”

CTV News Toronto spoke with the Ministry of Health who clarified Moore’s recommendations would be to the public, and not the government to reinstate any public health measures.

Moore said he is urging all Ontarians who are eligible to get their booster shot.
