In order to help limit the transmission of Covid-19, the provincial and federal governments have asked residents of Ontario to stay home, avoid non-essential travel and practice social distancing. Residents and visitors to Ontario are required to self-isolate for 14 days upon entering the province. Persons found breaking Covid-19 related guidelines can be fined under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA).
