BREAKING: Ontario announces plans for Stage 3 of reopening

In a press conference Monday afternoon, Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced specific plans for approaching Stage 3 of reopening the provincial economy amid COVID-19.

This phase is what the provincial government considers to be a near-complete reopening of the economy; though, large gatherings will still remain restricted to a maximum of 50 people indoors or 100 people outdoors, impacting businesses and industries such as live theatre, large sporting events, concerts, amusement parks, and more for the foreseeable future.

As part of Stage 3, the province will see the reopening of dine-in restaurants and bars, gyms and fitness centres, and events that can adhere to the newly-increased maximums of people in attendance while maintaining physical distancing.

The reopening also comes with the same COVID-19 health & safety guidelines that are still in place, including maintaining proper physical distancing in public spaces, wearing a face mask or covering in spaces where physical distancing is more difficult, frequent washing of hands with soap or hand sanitizer, and staying home as much as possible – especially if you are feeling unwell.

The limit on 10-person social circles, which allow Ontarians to create a consistent group of a maximum of 10 people to spend time together without physical distancing, remains in place as-is for the time being.

Many Ontario regions will be able to enter Stage 3 of reopening this Friday, July 17th at 12:01 am, with the exception of Hamilton, Halton, Haldimand-Norfolk, Toronto, Niagara Region, Peel Region, Lambton, Durham Region, Windsor-Essex, and York Region.
