Under the order, all Ontarians are required to stay home, only leaving for essential trips such as grocery shopping, medical appointments, and exercise.

Outdoor gathering limits have been reduced from ten to five, and masks are now recommended outdoors when physical distancing is difficult.

Ford emphasized several times that it is imperative that Ontarians do their part and "stay home to save lives."

Schools in five of Ontario's public health units will not resume in-person learning until February 10 at the earliest.

Hours for non-essential retailers have been reduced, now from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and big-box stores will undergo additional enforcement to ensure that measures are being followed.

Enforcement will increase in both indoor and outdoor areas to prevent groups larger than five from congregating.
