Stay-at-home order extended 2 weeks provincewide until June 2

Ontario's government is extending the provincewide stay-at-home order for an additional two weeks until at least June 2 with outdoor amenities and schools staying closed in the meantime.

"If all that is looking good at a certain point in time - along with high vaccine coverage - that's the point I think that certainly local health authorities will be able to consider loosening restrictions on what Canadians are able to do".

"Our hospitals are still under enormous pressure".

"So long as we receive sufficient supply from the federal government, we will work to get everyone who wants to be vaccinated fully vaccinated this summer", Ivana Yelich said in an email.

He said the province must "stay the course" to stop the raging spread of contagious virus variants by keeping in place public-health measures that are slowly bringing down case counts of COVID-19.

"These are precious weeks", he said.

As expected the province is extending the current stay-at-home order.

The premier blamed Ottawa for the third wave of the pandemic, suggesting a significant number of cases of the COVID-19 variants had entered Ontario through its land, air and water borders a claim that has been disputed by experts.

The province reported 2,759 new infections in its latest update - well below the more than 4,000 a day it was seeing when it last extended the order and added sweeping restrictions about a month ago.

Kevin Brady (R-Texas) accused the White House of being "in denial" that many businesses are struggling to hire more people. However, the former IRS chiefs did not actually comment on how the proposals would impact economic growth.

Thanks to the collective efforts of Ontarians in following public health and workplace safety measures, the province continues to make considerable progress in the fight to control the third wave of COVID-19. But many had hoped it would end a controversial ban on outdoor recreational activities that experts say are important for people's physical and mental health.

The Atlantic province reported 16 new COVID-19 cases, along with 10 hospitalizations.

Williams has said daily new cases should be below 1,000 a day before restrictions are relaxed. "That changes things tremendously". They are still around what was seen during the peak of the second wave.

"We've made some extremely hard choices in order to protect our hospitals".

"With the variants of concern the hospitalization rate is higher, the ICU rate is double so we have to take that into consideration".

"We need public health doctors, teachers and labor to agree on the best path forward and we also need consensus". "So for the time being we will need to continue with virtual learning".

The federal government approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for youths in that age category.The extension of the stay-at-home order means that Ontario residents must continue to remain at home except for certain purposes, which include going to work, a store, or exercising.

Elliott, who received a first dose of the AstraZeneca shot herself, moved to reassure people who got that vaccine that they had made the right decision to get immunized.
