Ontario government extends emergency orders for COVID-19 until July 10
TORONTO -- The Ontario government says it is extending its emergency orders for the COVID-19 pandemic until July 10.
Premier Doug Ford said the province has made good progress in reducing the spread of the coronavirus but Ontarians need to remain vigilant.
The province also said it will loosen some restrictions around indoor sports and fitness to enable amateur and professional athletes to train.
The announcement comes days after the government extended its state of emergency until July 15.
Ford has said he hopes this will be the last time Ontario has to extend their state of emergency.
The province will no longer be able to issue new emergency orders after a state of emergency ends, but it will be able to extend existing orders.
