In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Ontario announced a province-wide shutdown to commence on Saturday, December 26 at 12:01 a.m.; to last 14 days for Northern Ontario and 28 days for Southern Ontario.
Many restrictions under the shutdown are already in effect for regions which had previously been moved to the “Lockdown/Grey” stage of the COVID-19 Response Framework (e.g., City of Toronto and Peel Region). These lockdown restrictions are summarized in our November 23, 2020 Briefing Note.
However, several lockdown restrictions will be amended or expanded effective December 26. Further, while the shutdown is in effect, the COVID-19 Response Framework will not apply. Accordingly, regardless of whether an organization is new to the shutdown, or already in lockdown, it is important to understand the changes that will take effect on December 26.
If you have questions about how this province-wide shutdown may impact you as an employer, contact your Sherrard Kuzz LLP lawyer or, if you are not yet a client of our firm, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the re line: COVID-19.
Please Note Information changes daily (sometimes within a day), including the details of the various government initiatives, announcements, and regulations. As such, it is important to carefully review each updated Briefing Note to ensure you are aware of current information. Some content in older briefing notes may no longer apply.
If you have additional questions and/or for assistance, please contact your Sherrard Kuzz LLP lawyer or, if you are not yet a Sherrard Kuzz LLP client, you can reach us at email@example.com with the reline: COVID-19. We’ll respond promptly.
