Stay-at-Home Order

by | May 13, 2021 | HRLive, Ontario, Partners | 0 comments

As expected, the Stay-at-Home Order will be extended beyond the May 19th deadline previously set until June 2nd.  The provincial government also used this as an opportunity to announce an expansion to its vaccine program, confirming that youth 12 and older will be eligible for vaccination as early as month-end, May 31st (youth will be offered the Pfizer vaccine, the Astra Zeneca formulation having been withdrawn from programs).  After a very slow start, vaccination programs appear to be gaining much needed momentum.
