The Ontario government launched #StayHomeON on social media this week, and the first of a series of videos was released by comedian Rick Mercer.

In the video, Mercer pokes fun at the idea that the stay-at-home order currently in place in Ontario is confusing.

“It’s actually not. It just means: stay home. And I know people say, ‘Yes, but there are loopholes. There are exceptions.’ And that’s true. But just because technically, you’re allowed to do something, it doesn’t mean you have to do it,” he says.

The ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries is coordinating the #StayHomeON campaign. Other influencers participating include the Ottawa Senators, the Toronto Raptors, singer Serena Ryder and filmmaker Sergio Navarretta.
