The Act can be extended every thirty days and the public must be notified of each extension.

The extension does not change the status of any public health region's current zone nor stay-at-home orders.

Thirty public health regions have now transitioned back into the province's colour-coded framework.

Toronto, Peel, York, and North Bay Parry Sound have yet to re-enter the framework and remain under stay-at-home orders. The province is expected to address the media on Friday to announce new measures.

On Wednesday, Toronto officials requested that stay-at-home orders be extended until at least March 9, in order to curb the transmission of COVID-19. Peel Region has made the same request, according to CityNews.

The province currently has reported a total of 289,621 COVID-19 cases — 359 of which have tested positive for variants of concern.
