Ford Orders All Non-Essential Businesses Closed On Tuesday
Premier Doug Ford is ordering all non-essential services to shut down to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
The order will take effect at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday and will last for 14 days.
Ford said a list will be provided on Tuesday detailing what businesses will be allowed to stay open.
“The next 36 hours will give non-essential businesses the chance to adapt and prepare,” he said.
The move comes as the number of cases of the virus continues to surge in the province.
