According to CTV, Canada reported a total of 330,503 cases of the Covid-19 and 11,455 deaths as of Sunday evening.

On Saturday, Canada added 5,000 news cases, setting a scary daily record.

Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, advised Canadians to make a plan for safer holidays on Sunday amid record spikes of Covid-19 across the country.

In a statement, Tam said for Canadians near the holiday season, it’s imperative to consider public health measures when planning for holidays.

“Our best protection, now and into the holiday season, is to limit errands and outings to the essentials, keep in-person social activities to our existing household, and strictly and consistently maintain public health practices,” Tam said.

“That doesn’t mean we can’t continue to find safe ways to have the meaningful celebrations that are so important for maintaining our traditions and social connections,” she added.

“We have seen how creative Canadians can be, from online game nights and sharing special meals virtually with people outside our household, to warmly dressed, physically distanced walkabouts and cheering our neighbors with decorated balconies, windows, and lawns.”

Tam’s statement comes after Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and New Brunswick reported a single-day record increase of new cases of the Covid-19.
