The Province of Ontario has declared a state of emergency in response to increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in the province. As of Thursday, Jan. 14 2020, at 12:01 a.m., the government has issued a stay-at-home order requiring everyone to remain at home with exceptions for permitted purposes or activities, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, for exercise or for work where the work cannot be done remotely.
As U of T already had significant control measures in place and the majority of activities are being conducted remotely, the implications of the stay-at-home order are limited for the university.
At U of T, the following changes are in effect:
- All indoor and outdoor sport and recreation facilities will be closed (virtual programming will continue to be available)
- Indoor public events or social gatherings should not be held except with members of the same household
- Outdoor events or social gatherings are limited to a maximum of five people and participants should practise physical distancing and/or mask wearing
