Ontario Just Extended Its Emergency Orders Again And This Time They’re Here To Stay Until Spring

Ontario has just extended its emergency powers once again.

This means that all the emergency orders under the Reopening Ontario Act (ROA) will be in place until late March.

Originally, the orders were set to expire on December 1, 2021, but a motion by Solicitor General Sylvia Jones was passed on Tuesday that extended the orders to March 28, 2022.

This comes two weeks after Ontario stopped the lifting of capacity limits in what are considered high-risk areas like clubs due to rising case numbers.

That step was delayed by at least 28 days, so just 14 more to go!

The province is currently on a roadmap that would gradually see the orders in place under the ROA removed over time.

Currently, capacity limits for indoor settings that don’t require vaccine passports are set to be lifted on January 17, 2022. On February 7 of next year, the government is scheduled to remove all proof of vaccination requirements in high-risk settings like nightclubs.

On March 28, the Ontario government is scheduled to remove all public health measures, including masks.
