THE ROAD MAP TO REOPEN

The Province of Ontario has created a three-step plan to safely and gradually lift public health measures based on ongoing progress of province-wide vaccination rates and improvements of key public health and health care indicators.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Step 1 - beginning Friday June 11th, 2021

   This includes:

  • outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people

  • outdoor dining with up to four people per table

  • non-essential retail at 15% capacity


Step 2 

 Further expanding outdoor activities and resuming limited indoor services with small numbers of people and with face coverings being worn.   

This includes:​

  • outdoor gatherings of up to 25 people

  • outdoor sports and leagues

  • overnight camps

  • personal care services where face coverings can be worn and with capacity limits

  • indoor religious services, rites or ceremony gatherings at 25% capacity


Step 3

Expanding access to indoor settings, with restrictions, including where there are larger numbers of people and where face coverings can’t always be worn. 

 

   This includes:

  • indoor sports and recreational fitness

  • indoor dining

  • museums, art galleries, and libraries

  • casinos and bingo halls with capacity limits
