Government of Ontario Extends State of Emergency and Stay at Home Orders

The Government of Ontario has formally extended the state of emergency and all related orders, including a stay-at-home order for an additional 14 days, through February 9.

Originally enforced on January 12, the state of emergency will now expire on February 9, at the earliest, unless extended further. If the order weren’t extended, it would have automatically expired on Tuesday at 12:01 a.m., per the province’s release.

The stay-at-home order remains in place, being legally extended until February 9 under the emergency order. The initial minimum 28-day order will still take Ontario to February 11.

A declaration of emergency is enforced “to ensure that necessary measures and restrictions can be put in place to keep Ontarians safe and immediately respond to the ongoing threat of COVID-19.”

The provincial government has extended closures for school boards that will not return for in-person learning until February 10 at the earliest, including Windsor-Essex, Peel Region, Toronto, York, and Hamilton.

More than 100,000 students from regions outside the GTHA headed back into the classroom on Monday.

Education Minister Stephen Lecce announced that the province’s Chief Medical Officer had cleared the way for in-person learning to resume across seven public health units including Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge, and Peterborough Public Health.
