These orders have been extended to ensure that the population will continue to be protected against the spread of COVID-19. 

"Although the trends in public health indicators continue to improve, we must remain on our guard and only relax emergency orders if and when safe to do so," Ford stated. 

The government first announced a state of emergency on March 17, which is set to stay in place until July 24.
