On May 13, 2021, the Ontario government announced that it will extend the province-wide Stay-at-Home Order (O. Reg. 265/21) by two weeks, until June 2, 2021. The government announced that all public health and workplace safety measures under the province-wide emergency brake will remain in effect during this time.

On April 7, 2021, in response to a rise in COVID-19 infections, the Ontario government had declared a third provincial emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, and issued a Stay-at-Home-Order (the “Order”), effective Thursday, April 8, 2021 and set to expire on May 19, 2021.
