June 17, 2020 by The Canadian Press
TORONTO – The Ontario provincial government has extended all emergency orders currently in force until the end of June.
Premier Doug Ford says the province will review each of the orders on a case-by-case basis to determine whether they can be adjusted or lifted as officials work to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Some emergency orders were eased earlier this month, including a limit on social gatherings which is now set at 10 people instead of the previous limit of five.
Most of the province has also entered the second stage of re-opening, allowing more businesses to operate again.
The existing emergency orders were set to expire on Friday, but are now in effect until June 30.
Ford first declared a state of emergency on March 17, which allowed the government to issue emergency orders.
