TORONTO—Ontario is reporting 514 new COVID-19 cases today, and 38 more deaths.

That brings the province to a total of 8,961 cases, including 423 deaths and nearly 4,200 cases that have been resolved.

Ontario extends emergency orders

TORONTO — Doug Ford extended emergency orders meant to stop the spread of COVID-19, but the Ontario premier is unsure whether schools will shut for the year.

The emergency orders will be extended until Apr. 23, Ford said on Saturday, as he revealed the province's death toll had grown by 31 and prompted him to eye another round of measures to help the country's most vulnerable.
