Ontario leadership have announced that COVID-19 safety measures and emergency orders will continue until November 21 at the earliest.
"With the cold and flu season upon us and the continuing high number of COVID-19 cases in certain parts of the province, it's critical we continue to take the necessary steps to protect the health and safety of Ontarians," said Solicitor General Sylvia Jones.
Ontario has also introduced strict regulations in the Toronto, Ottawa, York and Peel regions. Overall, Ontario is reporting nearly 66,000 total cases with 56,600 of them considered resolved, along with 3,053 deaths.
"We have renewed the majority of orders to ensure we have the tools in place to address any urgent public health situations and support the continued delivery of critical services."
This comes as the American, Canadian border is also set to remain closed until at least November 21.
