TORONTO -- The Ontario government has extended all emergency orders under the Reopening Ontario Act (ROA) for at least another month.

The government made the announcement on Thursday afternoon through a statement posted to their website.

The emergency orders, which were set to expire on Feb. 19, have been extended until March 21.

Orders under the ROA include the province's ability to implement rules on public gatherings, business closures and managing outbreaks in hospitals or long-term care homes.

The extension of the emergency orders does not change the length of how long a region is placed in lockdown.

The ROA must be extended every 30 days and the government must notify the public which orders have been extended.
