Government of Ontario

Which places are required to be closed?

The government ordered a shutdown of all non-essential workplaces in Ontario starting Wednesday, March 25. The order detailing Stage 2 closures and what is allowed to be open can be found here. Any workplace that is not explicitly permitted to be open is required to be closed. Businesses may still operate online, by phone, or through delivery, and employees may work remotely.

In addition, the province has ordered the closure of some other facilities, including public libraries, schools, theatres and concert venues, and places of worship (with the exception of religious gatherings that comply with safeguards listed in the emergency orders).

All organized public events, including parades, or social gatherings of more than 10 people are also prohibited.

Individual municipalities may have voluntarily closed other facilities. Check the City of London website for more information about closures in London.
