The Ontario government has implemented further restrictions in its efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19. These restrictions come on the heels of a second wave of COVID cases sweeping across Canada.
The Ontario Health Minister, Christine Elliot remarked, “With Ontario’s recent alarming growth in the number of COVID-19 cases, our government is taking further action to help stop the spread of the virus and avoid future lockdowns. These are difficult, but necessary decisions that are being made to keep people safe, especially our seniors and vulnerable citizens. Everyone must follow the public health guidelines if we are going to stop the spread and contain the second wave.”
On October 10, 2020, Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa reverted to a modified Stage 2 in the Ontario government’s efforts to limit the transmission of COVID-19. Under the modified Stage 2, all social gatherings and organized public events are now limited to a maximum of 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. Indoor food and drink service in restaurants, bars and other food and drink establishments are now prohibited, including in mall food court areas and nightclubs. Schools and places of worship are deemed as exceptions.
As of recently, Toronto and Peel Region have gone into a lockdown. It is likely more cities will experience a lockdown as well.
