TORONTO (AP) — Canada is increasing a payroll subsidy to small- and medium-sized businesses to now cover up to 75 percent of salaries as the country braced for a shutdown that a top health official said will last months.
Canada’s Deputy Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Howard Njoo, said they are in it for the long haul.
“It’s not going to be days and weeks, it’s going to be months,” Njoo said. “Is there a possibility of a second wave? Who knows.”
