Ontario Delays March Break

Thursday, February 11, 2021

Ontario's Minister of Education announced the province will be postponing the March break until April 12-16, 2021. This decision was made with the advice of Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health and public health officials, including consultations with many local Medical Officers of Health. They are taking this precaution based on advice from health experts to help protect against the emerging COVID-19 variants of concern.

Regarding travel, the government's position is unchanged. Ontarians should refrain from travelling, particularly given the increase in new variants that pose a direct risk. Please stay at home as much as possible and continue following the direction of public health officials so that we can keep schools open and protect our seniors, frontline health workers and all families.
