Amendments to O. Reg 263/20 (Rules for Areas in Stage 2) and O. Reg 364/20 (Rules for Areas in Stage 3)

Communiqué 2020-19

October 22, 2020

I am providing an update on the renewal of orders under the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020 (ROA) as well as further amendments to the Stage 2 and Stage 3 orders.

Extension of Orders

The Ontario government has extended most orders currently in force under the ROA by 30 days (November 21, 2020) with the following exceptions:

Fire Department Training Facilities

Effective October 19, 2020, amendments to O. Reg 263/20 (Rules for Areas in Stage 2) and O. Reg 364/20 (Rules for Areas in Stage 3) have been made to remove restrictions on in-person teaching and instruction for fire departments. These amendments now provide an exemption for “training facilities operated by a police force or fire department” and ensures that fire safety training is aligned with other public safety partners.

If you have any questions, please speak with your Fire Protection Adviser.
