An Ontario-wide emergency alert was issued at 11 a.m. Thursday reminding residents that a stay-at-home order is now in effect amid a surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
The order officially came into effect at 12:01 a.m. Thursday. A third state of emergency was also declared.
“Only leave home for essential purposes such as food, health care, vaccines, exercise or work,” the alert read. “It is the law. Stay home, save lives.”

Non-essential retail stores are limited to curbside pickup or delivery only. Big-box stores are limited to only selling food and pharmacy items, any other items must be blocked off.
A similar alert was dispatched for the stay-at-home order amid the second wave.
