Province Extends Emergency Orders

Posted: 2020-06-17 10:24:36 By: thebay

Today the province has extended emergency orders until June 30, to ensure the government continues to have the necessary tools to safely and gradually reopen the province, and support frontline health care workers and protect vulnerable populations from COVID-19.

Premier Ford  says "Even though we're seeing decreasing infection rates with increased testing levels, we can't let our guard down just yet. We need to keep these emergency measures in place to support our frontline heroes and we must all continue following the public health advice, so we can reopen more of the province safely and gradually."

While current emergency orders will remain in place until the end of the month, the government will continue to review each one on an ongoing, case-by-case basis to determine when and if they can safely be adjusted or lifted, as part of the province's framework to safely reopen the province.
