Ontario government extends pandemic emergency orders until Sept. 22
TORONTO -- Ontario is extending its emergency orders today saying it continues to need the tools to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
Solicitor General Sylvia Jones says that while virus cases continue to go down, the province will extend most orders until Sept. 22.
Orders restricting activities under Stage 3, governing health care worker redeployment and management of long-term care homes remain in place.
The province says it will let some orders lapse, including one that allowed school boards to redeploy workers to health care facilities to respond to the pandemic.
That emergency order will expire on Aug. 31.
Jones says the government is conducting ongoing reviews of all of the orders to determine if they are still necessary.
