Ontario Extending Stay-at-Home Order across Most of the Province

The Province has announced that the Stay-at-Home order will remain in place for North Grenville until February 16, 2021. Essential businesses, including but not limited to grocery stores, convenience stores and pharmacies remain open. We are anticipating that our region we will be moving into a “Green Category” starting on the 16th, but we will wait on the official announcement from the Province and Health Unit. The category will depend on the case rates at that time.

Here’s a breakdown of the announcement:

Feb. 10: The regions of Hastings Prince Edward; Kingston Frontenac and Lennox and Addington; and Renfrew County and District will enter the “green” category of the restrictions system. That will allow non-essential retailers to open, restaurants to offer indoor dining, and personal care services to open.

Feb. 16: The province’s remaining public health units will transition to the colour-coded restrictions system, except for three hot spots in the Greater Toronto Area. The category regions are placed in will depend on case rates at the time.

Feb. 22: The hot spots of Toronto, Peel Region and York Region are expected to transition back to the colour-coded restrictions system, though the province said any sudden increase in cases could delay that plan.
