A reduced number of MPPs returned to Queen’s Park in Toronto today to extended the Deceleration of Emergency until May 12.
This will allow Ontario to continue to enforce current emergency orders, including the closure of all non-essential workplaces, outdoor parks and recreation areas and restrictions on social gathering of more than five people.
"During these unprecedented times, we cannot let our guard down. The actions being taken by everyone to stay home and practice physical distancing are making a difference, but we are not out of the woods yet," said Premier Ford. "With the support of every Ontario MPP, we continue to take any and all actions necessary to support our front line health care workers and respond rapidly and decisively to slow the spread of this deadly virus."
The extension comes days after the province extended the emergency orders.
