The Government of Ontario’s emergency declaration and orders to close schools, child care centres, and EarlyON Child and Family Centres have been extended. Key details from the news release are as follows:
* Private schools, licensed child care centres and EarlyON programs will also remain closed until April 13, according to the Declaration of Emergency, which only allows closures to be extended for one 14-day period at a time. Select centres designated to support frontline health care workers and first responders will remain open.
*The closure may be extended if necessary to protect the health and safety of students, families and staff
* Public schools will remain closed to teachers until Friday, May 1, 2020, and to students until Monday, May 4, 2020.
As these dates come closer, this decision will be re-evaluated based on public health advice.
