Province extends stay-at-home order for two weeks

The provincial government has extended the stay-at-home order related to COVID-19 by two weeks.

Included in a media release about vaccinations, the restrictions will remain in effect until at least Feb. 9.

The stay-at-home order — which was instituted on Jan. 12 — Ontario residents are to remain at home with exceptions for essential purposes, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy; accessing health care services; for exercise; or for essential work.

The Province said the new public health measures will help stop the spread of COVID-19 by reducing concerning levels of mobility as the province continues its vaccine rollout and ramps up to mass vaccination when the federal government is able to provide the necessary supply to do so.
