In making the announcement, Premier Doug Ford says there’s a possibility the order will be extended.
”This was a very, very tough decision.  But it is the right decision,” said Ford.
”This is not the time for half measures.”
A list of businesses that are permitted to stay open will be released tomorrow.
The premier says necessities, including food, medicines, electricity and telecommunications will still be available.
Businesses that can continue operating with employees working remotely, or through other contingency measures, are being given about 36 hours to prepare and adapt.
A 1-800 number and website will be made available tomorrow for any questions.
”The health of you, your children, your grandparents and friends depends on all of us doing our part,” added the premier in a statement.   
Meanwhile, public schools which are currently closed will not reopen April 6 as previously planned.
Ford says the education minister will have more to stay in the next day or two.
