Ontario is gradually moving away from the province-wide emergency shut down order to a more regional approach.  We will see a return to the colour-coded health and safety measures that were in use before Christmas.

Unless in a Grey Zone, dealers no longer need to be open by appointment only.

Those in the Grey Zones must continue to limit openings to by appointment only.

The following three regions will be moving to the Green level on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 12:01 a.m.

  • Hastings Prince Edward Public Health;
  • Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Public Health; and
  • Renfrew County and District Health Unit.

In all other health regions, the current Stay-at-Home order will be amended and individual orders making it applicable to each public health region will apply.

The Stay-at-Home order will continue to apply to all other public health regions except for Toronto, Peel and York, until Tuesday, February 16, 2021 and dealers will be restricted to appointment only opening until then.

For Toronto, Peel and York regions, the Stay-at-Home order will continue to apply until Monday, February 22, 2021 with appointment only opening for dealers until that time.

Final decisions will be subject to review of the trends in public health indicators at that time.

In addition, the provincial emergency declared under s 7.0.1 of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMPCA) will be allowed to terminate at the end of February 9, 2021.

If in doubt about your local requirements, please contact your regional health authority.
