Province extends emergency orders until April 23

The emergency orders declared by the province are set to continue during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The provincial government has extended all emergency orders that were put in place under s.7.0.2 (4) of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act until at least Thursday, April 23.

These orders include the closure of outdoor amenities in parks and recreational areas, non-essential workplaces, public places and bars and restaurants, along with restrictions on social gatherings and the prohibition of price gouging.

“I understand the actions we are taking are affecting the lives and livelihoods of people across the province, but these are extraordinary times and we need to do whatever we can to keep individuals and families safe and stop the spread of this terrible virus,” said Premier Doug Ford. “We all must continue to do our part by staying home and practicing physical distancing.”

The province says it’s also taking new measures to address surge capacity in retirement homes, restrict recreational camping on Crown land, and allow the repurposing of existing buildings and temporary structures so that communities can meet their local needs quickly.

“I am confident we will get through this together and stronger,” said Ford.

The following emergency orders are extended until April 23:
