Ontario issues stay-at-home order to start Thursday

Ontario declares second provincial emergency on Covid-19 spike The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada
Bennie Garza | 13 January, 2021, 01:34

A total of 47 emergency orders were issued under that state of emergency. We need people to only go out only for essential trips to pick up groceries or go to medical appointments.

The stay-at-home order will be in effect as of 12:01 a-m Thursday.

"This order and other new and existing public health restrictions are aimed at limiting people's mobility and reducing the number of daily contacts with those outside an immediate household".

"If we do not follow these restrictions, COVID-19 will continue to aggressively spread before vaccines have the chance to protect us". "But what these trends demonstrate is that further actions are necessary".

He warned that with the current total of 400 COVID-19 patients in hospital intensive care units potentially climbing in February to 1,000 - or half of the province's overall ICU capacity - doctors and paramedics will be forced to ration life-saving care, not just for COVID-19 patients but for those suffering from other health crises, such as heart attacks or injuries in auto accidents.

There are nearly 400 people with COVID-19 in intensive care in Ontario, almost twice the number that needed critical care at the beginning of December.

They show that under current restrictions, daily deaths from the virus will double from 50 to 100 between now and the end of February. But another 41 people died in the province since Monday and 138 more were admitted to hospital because of COVID-19.

Individuals are still required to wear a mask or face covering in the indoor areas of businesses or organizations.

The new measures also include restricting the hours of operation for non-essential retail stores such as hardware stores to between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m., and a five-person cap on outdoor social gatherings. These limits don't apply to stores that primarily sell food, gas stations, pharmacies, convenience stores or restaurants providing take-out or delivery.

Non-essential construction is further restricted, including below-grade construction, exempting survey.

The government said 1,563 people are now hospitalized with the virus, with 387 people in intensive care and 268 on ventilators.

"We have seen firsthand how delays cost lives", he said in a statement.

"We'll be going to cabinet with recommendations". "In acknowledgment of the serious public health risk posed by workplace transmission, the Toronto Board of Health called on the Province in May of 2020 to implement a program that would ensure workers had access to paid sick leave".

The province is expecting to receive 12 million Panbio tests from the federal government over the next several months and continues to pursue opportunities to purchase additional rapid tests.

The new variant of COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 (B117), could cause an increase in growth as current statistics show it is 56 per cent more transmittable than other variants now in the community. "It will take the collective efforts of us all to defeat this virus".

Under the state of emergency declaration, law enforcement and bylaw officers will have the power to disperse gatherings and issue tickets to those not following the measures. Those who decide not to abide by orders will be subject to set fines and/or prosecution under both the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act (ROA) and EMCPA.
