Ontario extends emergency orders until July 29
By CANADIAN VENDING
The Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, has extended most emergency orders currently in force until July 29, 2020.
Keeping the emergency orders in place provides the government with the necessary flexibility to ensure the protection of vulnerable populations, such as seniors, while continuing to implement its Framework for Reopening the Province with many regions entering Stage 3 on Friday.
“Although the trends in public health indicators continue to improve, we must remain on our guard and only relax emergency orders if and when safe to do so,” said Premier Doug Ford in a statement.
“By following our gradual plan to reopen the province, we are seeing people get back to work and resume many activities safely. We do not want to undo the tremendous progress we have made together, so I urge everyone to stay the course and follow public health advice.”
The government continues to review emergency orders currently in place to determine when and if they can be safely eased or lifted.
