In response to recent trends that show an alarming increase
in COVID-19 hospitalizations, the Ontario government, in consultation with the
Chief Medical Officer of Health, is temporarily moving the province into Step
Two of its Roadmap to Reopen with modifications that take into account the
province’s successful vaccination efforts. These time-limited measures will
help blunt transmission and prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed as the
province continues to accelerate its booster dose rollout. Just some of the
restrictions include the following. Please view the regulation for the full list of mandatory
public health and workplace safety measures.
social gathering limits to five people indoors and 10 people outdoors.
capacity at organized public events to five people indoors.
businesses and organizations to ensure employees work remotely unless the
nature of their work requires them to be on-site.
indoor meeting and event spaces with limited exceptions but permitting
outdoor spaces to remain open with restrictions.
libraries limited to 50 per cent capacity.
indoor sport and recreational fitness facilities including gyms, except
for athletes training for the Olympics and Paralympics and select
professional and elite amateur sport leagues. Outdoor facilities are
permitted to operate but with the number of spectators not to exceed 50
per cent occupancy and other requirements.
