Helpful, yet not helpful
Yesterday, we asked for your opinions on what to do with our Coronavirus Update now that Ontario and Ottawa are no longer providing daily COVID 19 data.
One-third of you said that you read the Coronavirus Update every day, one-third of you said that you never read it, and one-third said we should run it weekly.
We're going to find some patio this weekend and give this a think.
