COVID-19 Update: Ontario Emergency Order Effective January 14, 2021
The Ontario government has declared a second state of emergency that will take effect January 14, 2021.
The state of emergency includes a stay-at-home order that requires citizens to stay home except for essential purposes such as accessing grocery stores, pharmacies, health care services, and for essential work.
The order specifically targets social gatherings, non-essential retail, and non-essential construction. At this time, health care services such as optometry are not included in the order.
Due to rising case numbers and the emergency order, optometrists are reminded to continue following the College’s COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control guidance.
