WATCH: Daycare staff, teachers to be tested for COVID-19 when they return, says Ford

Premier Doug Ford faced questions today about Ontario's plans to ramp up testing across the province

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that kids would be tested for COVID-19. The premier clarified later in the press conference that will not be the case.

Doug Ford says he's 'wound up' about COVID-19 testing capacity across Ontario and he told reporters during a livestream today that daycare staff and teachers are among those included in the province's plans for testing as daycares resume in Stage 2 and school resumes in the fall.

He also promised to test a large swath of asymptomatic Ontarians, including another round of testing at long-term care homes.

Watch Ford address questions about Ontario's relatively low testing numbers in the video above.
