Ontario’s Stay at Home orders have been lifted for 27 regions on Tuesday, except for Toronto, Peel, and York regions.
On February 16, the orders were lifted for most of Ontario, which will return to the “revised and strengthened” COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open.
According to the province, based on a “general improvement in trends of key indicators” the 27 regions have been moved to their designated zone.
After returning to the Framework, public health regions will stay in their level for at least two weeks at which time, the government will assess the impact of public health and workplace safety measures to determine if the region should stay where they are or be moved to a different level.
