The province of Ontario is currently operating under a stay-at-home order, which has recently been extended to at least May 20th. The province announced new measures to combat the disease’s spread on Friday, including the closure of outdoor spaces such as basketball courts and golf courses to reduce outdoor public gatherings. However, in response to mounting criticism, the province rescinded those police powers and reopened playgrounds on Monday.
