"By continuing to strictly follow all measures, we can further reduce transmission of the virus, safeguard hospital and public health capacity, and save lives".

It was set to expire on May 20.

The provincial stay-at-home order will be extended another at least another two weeks.

"If we stay the course for the next two weeks, and continue vaccinating record number of Ontarians every day, we can begin looking forward to July and August and having the summer that everyone deserves".

"So long as we receive sufficient supply from the federal government, we will work to get everyone who wants to be vaccinated fully vaccinated this summer", Ivana Yelich said in an email.

Premier Doug Ford says outdoor activities such as golf and tennis will not be allowed until at least June 2.

"We want to open and stay open", Dr. David Williams said.

"The reality is, existing border measures have failed to keep the contagious variants out of Canada", Ford said.

"In the first and second wave when we were dealing wit the non-variants, the number 1,000 was where we had our predictable hospitalization rates around six per cent and ICU rates accordingly", Williams said.

Thanks to the collective efforts of Ontarians in following public health and workplace safety measures, the province continues to make considerable progress in the fight to control the third wave of COVID-19.

In Ottawa-area regions: Eastern Ontario Health Unit, which includes Cornwall and Hawkesbury, reported 18 new cases, while Leeds, Grenville & Lanark reported two, Renfrew reported eight and Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington reported seven.
