Ontario poised to issue stay-at-home order

Ontario’s government is expected to announce a new stay-at-home order today which will restrict all retailers apart from grocery stores, pharmacies, and garden centres to curbside pickup. For the first time in the province, big box stores will be required to halt access to non-essential aisles, an idea that Premier Doug Ford has resisted in past measures. The order is expected to last for about a month. Ford will address a press conference today at 2 p.m.
