Criminal and family trials on hold as Ontario court takes new steps on COVID-19
All family and criminal trials before the Ontario Court of Justice are being suspended in light of growing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, it says trials and preliminary inquiries will be put on hold until June, unless a judge orders otherwise.
