According to the province, Mackie called for the sudden switch from orange to red “because of trends in public health indicators in the area.”

Mackie said Monday that data made available over the weekend showed the urgent need for tighter restrictions.

“When the province made the decision last week, we didn’t have any of this data. At the time they decided we had rates that were still at the high orange levels. That really changed over the weekend and that’s why this change is being implemented tonight. “
