Effective Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 12:01AM, a provincewide declaration of emergency and a stay-at-home order are in effect. The Colour-coded framework is on pause during this time. The rules for the stay-at-home order are outlined in Ontario Regulation 265/21.

Schedule 1 of O. Reg. 265/21 states the following:

Requirement to remain in residence
"1. (1) Every individual shall remain at the residence at which they are currently residing at all times unless leaving their residence is necessary."

Schedule 1 outlines the specific purposes for which a person may leave their residence, including several that are relevant to libraries:

  • "Working or volunteering where the nature of the work or volunteering requires the individual to leave their residence, including when the individual’s employer has determined that the nature of the individual’s work requires attendance at the workplace."
  • "Purchasing or picking up goods through an alternative method of sale, such as curbside pickup, from a business or place that is permitted to provide the alternative method of sale."
