The provincial government made a notice on Thursday morning, stating that the renewal of all orders under the Ontario Reopening Act (ROA) will assist “the delivery of health care and important services. safely “until the COVID-19 vaccine is widely available.
Attorney General Sylvia Jones said in a statement released Thursday: “Protecting the health and well-being of the people of Ontario remains our top priority at every stage of the reaction to COVID-19”
“As we prepare to launch a safe and effective immunization program, extending this legislation will help address public health emergencies until all Ontario residents can be vaccinated. “
Orders under the ROA include giving the province the ability to enforce public gatherings rules, close businesses, and manage outbreaks in hospitals or nursing homes.
The renewal of the emergency orders did not change the closing times in Toronto and the Peel Region, which had been going on for more than two weeks.
According to the ROA, COVID-19 related orders applied during a pandemic can be modified, but new emergency orders cannot be created.
