April 8th is the 98th day of 2021. There are 267 days remaining until the end of the year.

As of 12:01 this morning, Ontario is under a 4 week provincewide stay-at-home order.

This means that everyone must stay at home except for essential purposes, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services (including getting vaccinated), for exercise close to home and with the people you live with, or for work that cannot be done remotely.

In addition to the provincewide stay-at-home order, the closure of non-essential retail and new restrictions for big box stores has been introduced by the government. Discount and big box stores are limited strictly to in-person retail for sales of groceries, household cleaning supplies, pharmacy items (including pharmaceutical, health care, and personal care items, and pet care supplies) only. Non-essential retail stores, such as malls, will be restricted to curbside pickup only.
